While not always on the same page, many clients can negotiate with the other party directly to reach an amicable settlement

Negotiating a settlement is one of the most common methods of resolving family law issues.  Very often, the parties are able to work together to reach a solution. This might entail trading emails or letters between the parties’ attorneys or having a meeting with both parties and their attorneys in a conference room, where the four of them settle the case.  It may also entail memorializing in a settlement agreement that the parties reached on their own, while sitting at the “kitchen table,” and helping them file the judgment paperwork with the court.
