Sherman Oaks Divorce Attorney
Many of our clients come to us wondering if there is any such thing as a dignified divorce. At the Law and Mediation Offices of Barbara Irshay Zipperman in Sherman Oaks, California, what seems impossible can become possible.
Divorce with Dignity is Possible
A dignified divorce can be accomplished if each side is open to negotiation and compromise. Mutual respect of each other's needs and a focus on the best interests of their children are important steps towards ending a marriage. Contentious litigation can reduce your divorce into a war between two factions who are each looking to win, rather than looking to resolve the financial and emotional issues.
Attorney Barbara Irshay Zipperman represents clients in divorce and the matters related to it, including:
Various Options to Resolve Your Divorce
We encourage all of our clients to look into mediation. It provides a more cooperative environment to resolve issues related to a divorce, and also gives the divorcing couple control over the decisions and the costs. Attorney and mediator Barbara Irshay Zipperman has received comprehensive training in the mediation process and volunteers with the Los Angeles Superior Court. She can serve as either a neutral facilitator overseeing the proceeding or represent one side's rights and best interests. She also advocates for clients in collaborative law proceedings.
Divorce Litigation as an Option
After exhausting all other options, litigation may be the best way to resolve your divorce. If both sides are far apart or one spouse chooses not to negotiate in good faith, a judge will have to make the key decisions related to your future. Custody, support, and division of property decisions will be made by a third party. While it is not the best way to resolve your divorce, it may be a pragmatic step to moving on following your marriage.
