Constructing New Beginnings

Divorce doesn’t have to mean a costly and painful battle. Mediation and Collaborative Divorce are two options for staying out of court. Both are faster, cost-effective, non-adversarial alternatives to stressful and expensive litigation. Working with a mediator or a collaborative support team is more peaceful and creates a foundation for both members of the couple to move forward to build a new life.

As a mediator and collaborative attorney with a down to earth, practical approach, Emily guides couples toward cooperative, respectful engagement. By honoring both parties’ priorities – and with the goal of lower stress for children and parents – she can help you get around roadblocks and craft sensible solutions. The results are lower costs, equitable results, and healthier, happier kids.

How De Falla Law & Mediation Can Help

Divorce mediation is a voluntary process for couples that want to work together to create a settlement without going to court. It has the advantage of being private, informal, confidential, and cost-effective. The mediator is a neutral third party who facilitates communication in a safe and structured environment. The mediator guides the parties through the legal process, outlining the legal issues and helping them make decisions based on their respective needs and interests. At De Falla Law & Mediation we prepare all of the legal paperwork to obtain your final judgment. Learn more >

Collaborative Divorce is a team approach to divorce. The friendly and cooperative process keeps you in control of your future, focusing on what is most important: family, finances, and emotional health. Participants work with a team of professionals to craft their own agreements, taking into consideration each family member’s needs and interests. The couple works together in a safe and structured environment, communicating respectfully and protecting the children from their conflict. Decisions are made by the participants themselves, outside the court system. Learn more >
