We know that this is a painful time for you. Your life is about to change in ways that you may not quite understand or want it to. Separation is not an easy thing to experience. Some experts say that experiencing a separation and/or divorce is akin to having a death in the family.
From simpler cases where it’s relatively easy to get to a resolution to complex cases involving custody, support and division of property, we here at JMS Law are here to help you through this very difficult time. Our focus is to get you to a resolution in a way that is helpful to you and your family; we will do all that we can to help you and your family see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Whether litigating or negotiating, the JMS Law team brings their philosophy of compassion, authenticity and mindfulness to the practice of family law in order to maximize the healing potential to conflict.
Getting through this time as quickly, fairly and efficiently as possible is important to us so that you can move forward to the next chapter of your life. We will assist you in making this a very cost-effective process in all ways: emotionally, physically and financially.
The Family Law team at JMS encourages everyone to come to the table prepared to help the family—as a whole—to move forward. This makes us good role models for our children and demonstrates our commitment to the Best Interest Principle. We actively encourage our Clients and opposing sides to strive towards a goal of resolution. This approach fosters growth for the entire family and, ultimately, the children (both young and adult) benefit greatly when this happens.
We are very resolution-focused and will do all that we can to resolve your matter in a way that creates less conflict. However, there are times when strong advocacy is necessary, and resolution must come through litigation. In these cases, we are prepared to be a strong advocate for you.
Whether through negotiation or litigation, our goal is always to bring you to resolution as quickly as possible.
You may be feeling overwhelmed and need to regroup and regain your sense of self to be ready to solve matters collaboratively. We’ll help you be ready. Our philosophical principles are rooted in a keen sense of family and community that involve practices of inclusion, acceptance, compassion and mindfulness, wherever possible. Our Family Law team believes that we stand a better chance of reaching a sustainable resolution to any conflict by being authentic, self-aware, and accountable to ourselves and those around us.
Call us for a consultation today and we can explain and walk you through the details of every stage of your matter, step-by-step. If that is too much for you at this time, we can at least give you an idea of how the family law system works and how we can help you navigate, what can seem like a very complicated process for people experiencing this very difficult time.
