Hightower Reff Law offers seasoned divorce attorneys who are also among the small number of Nebraska lawyers certified in Collaborative Divorce – an alternative to the traditional adversarial court process.
With Collaborative Divorce, you and your spouse work with a team of professionals including lawyers, financial professionals and mental health or counseling specialists, to come up with an agreement covering all issues in your divorce. There is no court intervention or threat of it.
The needs of the children and the family’s welfare are the focus of the collaborative process. At the start, everyone signs a Participation Agreement that includes a promise:
Unlike traditional litigation-centered divorce, the parties (you and your spouse) control the collaborative divorce process. That means you have the decision-making power instead of a judge working under statutes set by the State.
In our years of experience at Hightower Reff Law, we have found that clients are most satisfied with an agreed upon outcome in which they had input, rather than one forced upon them by a court.
This is one of the reasons that the collaborative process can work so well, and why the lawyers at Hightower Reff believe in it so strongly for clients who agree to the process.
