What is the collaborative law process?
Collaborative law involves the parties and their respective attorneys working with neutral professionals to reach mutually beneficial agreements without going to court.
The collaborative process begins with a Participation Agreement signifying each spouse’s willingness to work through issues and construct agreements outside of court.
The negotiation process requires full financial and property disclosure and transparency by each party.
At Tuzinski & Zick, L.L.C., we routinely handle collaborative law cases and reach successful agreements without going to court.

What is family mediation and what does the mediation process entail?
A mediator is a neutral third party that facilitates the process of identifying potential issues that need to be dealt with and gathering all necessary information in an informal setting.
You can usually have your attorney present during mediation sessions, and your attorney will be able to prepare and file all legal documents reflecting the agreements reached during mediation.
