Skilled And Personalized Family Law Services

Collaborative Divorce Attorneys in Orlando, Florida


Family law issues can be emotionally-charged and take a toll on all involved parties, especially children. At the law office of Mercedes R. Wechsler, P.A., we understand the stress and anxiety that accompanies family law and divorce cases. Our legal team strives to help clients understand their rights and options while attempting to minimize any additional strain that the legal process may cause.

There are several methods used to resolve family law disputes. If you are interested in seeking a cooperative and minimally-stressful resolution, mediation or collaborative law (sometimes called “collaborative divorce”) may be right for you.

What is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative law is a method of divorce and family law resolution that is gaining popularity across the country. Through this type of process, both parties enlist the assistance of specifically trained lawyers whose only job is to help settle the case and related matters. All participants agree to work together respectfully, honestly and in good faith to find solutions that meet the legitimate needs of both parties. This can be very valuable to couples seeking a non-adversarial and efficient resolution for themselves and their children. Some of the issues that are handled throughout the collaborative process include the dissolution itself, as well as child support, child custody, alimony and property division.

Our firm will assess your case to determine if collaborative law would be in your best interests. We will also give you the necessary knowledge to make an informed decision about which way to proceed.

Though our firm attempts to resolve your divorce or other family law case through means of alternative dispute resolution, such as divorce mediation, we are not afraid to take a case to trial if we determine that this would be in your best interests and the best interests of the case.

For more information about the collaborative divorce process and how we can help you resolve your child custody, child support and other family law matters, contact a lawyer at our office in Orlando at 407-839-1364.
