Working Through A Collaborative Divorce Together

At Schmidlkofer, Toth, Loeb & Drosen, LLC, we bring more than 100 years of combined legal experience to people throughout southeastern Wisconsin. We take the time necessary to fully explain the law and process, as well as your options and likelihood of success so that you always know what to expect. We understand the importance of getting timely answers to your questions, and we work hard to be available and accessible when you need to talk.

Understanding The Process

The collaborative divorce process evolved as more people sought to settle divorce differences without the time, expense and emotional bitterness often associated with the traditional divorce process. In the collaborative process, both parties retain counsel, but the role of the lawyers is to help the parties identify ways to resolve their differences without the involvement of the judge or the court.

In the collaborative process, the parties frequently bring in outside experts, such as financial planners and family counselors, to determine the most effective solutions to issues such as custody, visitation and support. If the parties come to an agreement on all issues, a binding order is entered by the court. If the parties cannot resolve differences collaboratively and must seek the intervention of the courts, the parties must hire new counsel to represent them in any further legal proceedings.

We will handle all matters related to your collaborative divorce proceeding, and we will help you identify all potential avenues to settle your disagreements without going to court. We have the ability to protect your interests without making the process unworkable. We can also draft the marital settlement agreement, should you settle all differences through the collaborative process.
