Westlake Village Collaborative Divorce Attorney Serving Southern California

A collaborative divorce is a non-confrontational and confidential approach similar to mediation, but it involves two attorneys and a team consisting of a mental health and a financial professional, all working towards the resolution of your case. Team members will advise you on topics related to finances, tax problems, child custody and property division. The attorney will assist the parties reaching their own conclusions and guide them along the way. I'm attorney Edward S. Matisoff, a Westlake Village collaborative divorce lawyer who has been helping California residents reach peaceful solutions for two decades. My entire practice is devoted to solving family law issues, whether it's through mediation, collaboration or litigation.

An Experienced Ventura County Child Support Lawyer

The collaborative divorce option is less costly and less adversarial than litigation. Ultimately, decisions are left to you. With the aid of a group of professionals, this process will account for all of the pertinent details. We can help you use your best judgment in a stressful, emotional situation. The proceedings are also confidential, which means if the divorce turns into litigation, the information shared in the collaborative portion of the divorce cannot be used in court.

The supportive and collaborative setting provides the best environment for reaching the most reasonable result for everyone, especially children when they are involved. I have been practicing law since 1983, and this relatively new divorce option has resulted in some of the most equitable, forward-looking agreements I have been a part of.
