Our divorce attorneys are prepared to help you navigate adversarial divorce proceedings. In the event that neither party can agree on how to settle the divorce, the Hightower Reff Law team will work to advocate for the results you want, from custody to the division of assets and beyond.
An uncontested divorce is similar to a collaborative divorce in that both parties agree on how the divorce should be settled. However, this process still typically involves the court system, and we’re ready to guide you through every step.
When both parties in a divorce work together amicably and are able to resolve things out of court, the process is considered a collaborative divorce. The Hightower Reff Law team is here to facilitate these negotiations. Often, this approach is faster and less expensive than traditional adversarial divorce. Let us assist in making your collaborative divorce go as smoothly as possible.
