SAME SEX MARRIAGE DISSOLUTION
A healthy alternative to the complexities of LGBT divorce
In Vermont, dissolving a Civil Union or Gay Marriage follows the same process as a conventional divorce.
Nanci can help facilitate Collaborative Divorce for the LGBT community.
IT TAKES A TEAM
The Essential Piece of Collaborative Law
Many times there is more to a case than simply hiring an attorney. When the complexities of financial, emotional and time constraints strain you to capacity - sometimes your message gets lost. We proactively work as a team to help get the best results for all. The beauty of Collaborative Law cases is you are never alone. Nanci sees to it that you have the support you need for emotional, financial and legal needs.
Many people have both parenting and financial issues that they just cannot resolve on their own. We assist in generating and evaluating options not only in parenting, but also in complex financial stuations. Nanci and the collaborative team will help guide and enforce the structure of the collaborative process to empower you to resolve your issues in a healthy and constructive way.
We help make the transition from an emotionally engaged couple to a business/problem solving relationship.
