Divorce and Child Custody Litigation

Litigation is generally considered the "traditional" means of conflict resolution.   While parties are still free to settle their family law claims, they often do so with input from their own counsel and with some contact with the Court. Ultimately,  their divorce, child custody and other claims may be  resolved by a Judge or Hearing Officer after taking testimony and evidence from the parties at a trial or hearing.

Sometimes parties must litigate their divorce, child custody and other family law disputes in court
Sometimes parties work with a family law mediator to resolve divorce, child custody and other family law issues.

Divorce and Child Custody Mediation

In family law mediation, instead of going to Court and relying upon the rulings of a Judge or Hearing Officer, the parties jointly retain a mediator. The mediator who  them in working towards a solution to their domestic relations matters, including divorce, division of assets, child custody and other claims.

Sometimes parties work with a family law mediator to resolve divorce, child custody and other family law issues.

Divorce and Child Custody Collaboration

In the collaborative process, the parties agree from the beginning that they won’t go to Court. Rather, the parties' collaboratively trained attorneys  work with other collaborative team members. The collaborative team can include  trained mental health professionals,  financial planners and others  who assist the parties to facilitate an amicable resolution of their divorce, custody and other issues.

In collaborative divorce, collaborative divorce lawyers help to resolve divorce, child custody and other family law issues.

What is Uncoupling Pittsburgh?

Uncoupling Pittsburgh is a team of divorce lawyers and child custody lawyers who recognizes that the uncoupling  process impacts all aspects of a person's life and it impacts each person differently.

The end of a relationship, be it marriage, or something else,  with or without children, gay or straight,  impacts a person not just legally, but emotionally and financially as well.  Further, no two people will be effected in exactly the same way.

While the facts from one case to another will always be different, so will the individuals going through the uncoupling process, and they will be uniquely impacted by the life changes that they are facing.
At Uncoupling Pittsburgh we take a wholistic approach to the uncoupling process, and we regularly work with financial planners, therapists and other experts to help our clients reach a resolution of their family matter that is best for them legally, mentally, emotionally and financially.
