Bort Law exclusively utilizes a collaborative approach to divorce, child custody, support arrangements, prenuptial agreements, and many other family law matters. The goal of collaborative law is to solve problems together, restructure effective relationships for the future, and prevent unnecessary court battles. During face-to-face meetings, the parties and their collaborative team create a dialogue to produce an honest exchange of information and an expression of needs and expectations. Issues are openly discussed, and problem solving is direct and solution-oriented. The parties remain in control of the decisions that are made, rather than leaving the outcome up to a judge.

Dealing with family law issues?

Family law generally concerns domestic relations and family-related matters such as marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships, adoptions, paternity, guardianships, domestic abuse, surrogacy, child custody, child abduction, the dissolution of marriage and associated issues. Each state has its own set of family laws, and traveling across state borders can sometimes affect your rights and those of your family.

Contrary to popular belief, seeking the advice of a family law attorney does not necessarily mean that something is amiss in your family. A family law attorney can help negotiate prenuptial/premarital agreements for clients in anticipation of marriage or advise same-sex couples on relevant legal issues affecting their relationship. They also can help with adoption proceedings and other procedures involving children.

Family law attorneys often do represent clients seeking a divorce, annulment or legal separation, and the complicated issues that can arise as a result. Although domestic abuse is a criminal offense, some family law attorneys are skilled at handling these situations, as they are often entangled with other family law issues.

Some jurisdictions certify lawyers as family law specialists, which means these attorneys have met the certifying body's minimum requirements for education, experience, and examination.
