KA Gilbert Law Announces Free Consultation Services for Collaborative Divorce

HACKENSACK, NJ--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2014) - Kathryn A. Gilbert, Bergen County, N.J. divorce attorney, announces the launch of a new program to provide free consultation services to clients interested in learning more about the advantages and disadvantages of collaborative divorce.

"For many couples, collaborative divorce is the best alternative but many people aren't completely aware of how the process works or what to expect. My free consultation service gives them a no-cost way to research all of their options," said Kathy Gilbert, owner of KA Gilbert Law. "The Collaborative process is an especially good resolution process for parents concerned about the well-being of their children. It focuses on maintaining a family even though Mom and Dad will be residing in separate households."

Ms. Gilbert further explained that one of the many benefits of collaborative divorce is that both parties come to a mutually agreeable resolution that is a product of their own decisions. Another is that all meetings between the couple and their attorneys are private and confidential, which is quite different than traditional divorce proceedings where all documents become public records that are available to children, neighbors or employers.

KA Gilbert's new, no-cost service is also useful for clients that eventually find out that collaborative divorce is not a good option for them. "There are challenges to collaborative divorce too so it is vitally important that people find out right away if this is or is not the best course of action for them," said Gilbert. During a consultation with Ms. Gilbert, clients can explore whether they are good candidates for this process or they may realize that they are better off pursuing traditional divorce litigation to settle their matrimonial issues.

Kathy A. Gilbert is experienced and qualified in family law and divorce. Therefore, she understands that collaborative settlements between couples can mean less stress, less expense and often, happier children during these trying proceedings. In offering free consultation services to help prospective clients weigh the advantages and disadvantage of collaborative divorce, Gilbert hopes to reduce the trauma and anxiety as much as possible while still achieving the best outcome possible for her clients.
