Ending a marriage is never easy; however, if both parties want to dissolve the relationship as smoothly as possible, filing for collaborative divorce with the qualified attorney at Podoll Law PLC could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Filing for divorce in Michigan can happen one of two ways: by filing a complaint for divorce and by filing a petition — also known as a collaborative divorce.

An alternative to traditional divorce, a collaborative divorce enables both parties to negotiate their terms of divorce, and can drastically reduce both financial costs and emotional headaches.

Many divorces are lengthy, complicated and can end with a lot of hurt feelings. However, with the right attorney on hand, many fights can be avoided and agreements can be reached. From settlements regarding property division to child custody, child support and other financial agreements, our experienced attorney is ready to help you reach a positive resolution in a better time frame.

During your time with us, we will sit down with you so we can discuss your needs and desirable outcome. After gaining an understanding of your situation, we will set up a time to meet with your spouse and their lawyer so we can begin negotiations.

No matter your relationship with your spouse, communication is crucial during the collaborative divorce process. Trust our assertive attorney to voice your concerns, your requests and come to a positive conclusion.

Though this is an ideal outcome, it’s important to remember that both parties must be willing to come to an agreement regarding all issues before the petition for divorce is filed. Those issues may or may not include issues of debts, assets, personal and real property, child support, spousal support, parenting time and more.
