Can you Resolve a Case Outside of Court?

At Morneau Law, we are committed to helping people through divorce dispute resolutions in a manner that least impacts families. Luckily, we have several tools to help effectively and efficiently minimize the animosity between parents and keep New Hampshire families out of court.

Some of the methods for avoiding court that our attorneys will assist you with include:

Collaborative Law

This method of divorce emphasizes joint and cooperative problem solving instead of litigation. The parties remain in control of the process without interference from the court.

Mediation and Arbitration

These methods offer parties resolution without going to court. In fact, many New Hampshire courts are mandating people to engage in alternative dispute resolution before setting a hearing date. These methods can save parties time, money, and the stress of going to court.

Parenting Coordinator

A Parenting Coordinator is appointed by the court to provide guidance to parents and to help them make decisions regarding their children. A parenting coordinator’s role is to facilitate communication, provide advice and interpret the existing court orders. A parenting coordinator does not have the authority to make decisions. The goal is to keep parenting disputes out of court.

Morneau Law’s team of attorneys and paralegals are highly trained and are available to work with high-conflict families in any of these roles. To learn more about how to settle your case out of court, please contact us by calling (603) 943-5647 to schedule a consultation.

Katherine J. Morneau of Morneau Law is a member of the New Hampshire Collaborative Divorce. She was also recently recognized by the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals for her dedication and passion for the field of collaborative practice with her acceptance to the 2021-2022 Leadership Academy.
