Your family is important. At Woznicki Law, we can help you navigate difficult family matters, like divorce and child custody matters, with civility and compassion. 

More and more couples desire to work together on agreeable outcomes when they divorce. In a collaborative divorce, both parties agree in advance to work toward a favorable outcome for both them and their children, when they are involved. A collaborative divorce avoids lengthy and expensive court battles, and can sometimes be completed much more quickly – sometimes even within the waiting period required by law. Our experience in negotiations and mediation means that we can make the divorce process feel a little more friendly and agreeable.
