Making the difficult decision to end a marriage can be hard enough. But once you do, things have a tendency of getting out of hand quickly. Emotions run high and often times people say some regrettable things they don't mean when in an emotional state such as anger or distress- I'm here for those instances! As someone who's specialized in divorce mediation and collaborative law- where both spouses work with me instead of against each other to negotiate details over their separation settlement agreement, we're able to maintain your knowledge on what happens next while guiding yourself through this legal process that will last (hopefully) only one day at most if my services are used properly by all parties involved.

Divorce is hard. It’s even harder when you have to hire a lawyer and go through the court system. Don’t let your divorce get any more stressful than it needs to be!
You can avoid the stress of litigation by choosing mediation or collaborative divorce as an alternative. Mediation and collaborative divorce are both non-adversarial methods that help couples come up with solutions together, rather than fighting in court over who gets what. If this sounds like something you would prefer, give us a call today for more information at (949) 891-0091 or visit us at www.pcvlawyer.com!

πŸŽ„βœ¨ Embracing Co-Parenting Bliss this Christmas πŸŒŸπŸ’–

πŸŽ…βœ¨ This holiday season, let's make it about more than just presents - let's gift our children the magic of love, unity, and joy! Here's a little reminder on how to foster a positive co-parenting dynamic and create unforgettable holiday memories :

1️⃣ Choose Kindness: No room for regrets! Approach co-parenting with kindness and understanding. Choose love over resentment, and remember, the best gift for your children is seeing their parents getting along. πŸ’•πŸ€

2️⃣ Open Lines of Communication: Keep those communication channels open. Discuss holiday plans, gift ideas, and any concerns openly and respectfully. It's all about teamwork! πŸ—£οΈπŸ€²

3️⃣ Share the Joy: Celebrate together if possible! Sharing the holiday festivities can create beautiful memories for your children. It's not about you or your ex, it's about the little faces lighting up with joy. πŸŽπŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦

4️⃣ Be Present, Not Perfect: Perfect doesn't exist, especially in co-parenting. Be present in the moment, enjoy the laughter, the chaos, and the coziness. Those imperfect moments create the most beautiful memories. πŸŽ„πŸ˜Š

5️⃣ Prioritize Your Child's Happiness: Let your child's happiness be your guiding star. From festive decorations to warm hugs, focus on creating an environment filled with love and joy. 🌟❀️

Share your own co-parenting holiday tips below, and let's inspire each other to make this season truly magical! πŸŒˆπŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ πŸŒŸπŸŽ‰

Families that have high conflict are often in a no-win situation.

High conflict families often end up spending tens of thousands of dollars on legal fees and court costs as they battle for custody, parenting time, and child support. These cases can drag out for years with no end in sight. The cost is not only financial but emotional as well.

Consensual Dispute Resolution such as Mediation or Collaborative Divorce is the answer to this problem because it allows parties to come together at one table instead of two opposing tables in litigation. Consensual Dispute Resolution brings people together to discuss their issues and work towards solutions without being judged by an attorney or Judge. During the process you will learn how to communicate better so that your children do not grow up with high conflict parents who fight about every little thing which causes them stress and anxiety later in life when they start dating or get married themselves.

Do you want to Divorce without Drama?

I am a Collaborative Family Law Attorney and Mediator. I work with families who are looking for a way to minimize the impact of divorce on their children and I give them a process to learn to restructure the family unit without destroying it. As a former litigator, I saw the damage that High Conflict Divorce can have on children. In this Consensual Dispute Resolution process, we create resolutions that keep your children in the center and do not expose them to fighting between their parents. When you love your children more than you hate your spouse, you can come to agreement together peacefully.

We also help people understand how important it is for both parents’ needs be met after separation so there isn’t resentment towards one another down the road which leads us into my next point…I want each person involved in mediation sessions with me feels respected throughout this difficult time because everyone deserves respect no matter what choices they make about their future lives!

Divorce can be a long and painful process, especially when it is contested.

Mediation helps to alleviate the stress of going through a divorce by giving couples more control over their final marital settlement agreement. The couple decides how they want the property divided, spousal support paid out or if there will be any at all. It's not an easy decision for anyone involved but you don't have to do it alone with mediation your attorney can help guide you through this process while still keeping your children in mind.

When deciding on who should get what during divorce, you need to consider many different things such as income levels of both parties, properties owned before marriage and after marriage etc. This is why our team has made sure that we offer free consultations so that we can get an understanding of each party's situation before making decisions regarding the division of assets. We are here to make this difficult time easier for everyone involved!

In the realm of divorce and family conflicts, the toll on families can be immeasurable.

At the Law Office of Patricia Van Haren, we believe there's a better way forward. Consensual Dispute Resolution methods, such as Mediation or Collaborative Divorce, offer an alternative path. Instead of pitting parties against each other in a courtroom battle, these approaches bring everyone to one table, fostering open dialogue and collaboration.
