Courtroom Representation • Mediation and Collaborative Law
Kansas is a “no fault” divorce state, which means that you will not have to prove to the court why you are entitled to a divorce. However, there are other issues that must be decided, either by the couple themselves or by a judge with the help of a lawyer. These include:
The decisions you make today may change the course of your life and will certainly change the lives of your children. It is important to make the best decision possible, with an eye toward the future. Unfortunately, the stress and emotional upheaval most people feel at the time of a divorce can make this difficult.
As an experienced Kansas divorce attorney, I take the time to listen to your goals and concerns so I can help you move forward with your life. I can suggest and guide you toward options most likely to obtain the outcome you’re seeking. You can count on me to keep your long-term interests in mind.

Is Mediation or Collaborative Law Right for You?
You do not need to choose between quality legal representation and cost effectiveness. There are many benefits to mediation and the collaborative law process:
Higher Satisfaction —When people work together to reach their own agreements, they are usually more satisfied with these agreements and find them easier to live with in the long term.
Creative Solutions— While a divorce court judge may have handled thousands of divorce cases, he or she does not know your unique situation or understand the dynamics of your family like you do. You are more likely to find creative solutions that work for you and your children through alternative dispute resolution.
Speed— It takes months for a case to get to court. When you and your former partner work together, with the support of a mediator or knowledgeable collaborative law attorney, you can expect to come to agreements relatively quickly.
I invite you to contact my office to schedule an initial consultation about your divorce, legal separation, or other family law matter.
