Collaborative Law

Sometimes referred to as “no court divorce,” collaborative divorce is an effective alternative to traditional, adversarial litigation, which can be costly financially and emotionally. The collaborative process is a civilized, respectful approach to divorce that involves people working together with their attorneys toward constructive solutions that are in the best interest of the entire family.

Mediation

Mediation is an informal, confidential process involving parties working with a neutral third party to find middle ground. The mediator facilitates discussion and assists in negotiating resolutions to issues in dispute. The goal of mediation is to find mutually agreeable solutions rather than laying blame on either of the parties.

"We have been really impressed with how fast and efficient Amy is with getting our adoption hearings scheduled and finalized.  It is clear that she makes her clients a priority and knows how important our Adoption Days have been to our family!”  ~Jake Skurdal
“Skogerson Law provides friendly, fast service! I was more than satisfied with the results of my custody modification and always felt like my case was at the top of the to do list. There is no question that I will use Skogerson Law for any future needs!” - Jessica
"I have referred Amy to literally every person I know who is adopting (I think I'm at 3 and running!) and there is a reason for that!  Amy truly makes us feel like she cares about helping our family grow, and the best part is that I know it isn't an act - it is clear that she loves what she does and helping children find their forever families!” ~Elizabeth Skurdal
"I cannot recommend Amy highly enough. She was everything I was looking for in a collaborative divorce lawyer: understanding, nonjudgmental, caring. Amy was prepared for every meeting and was prompt and efficient in completing whatever tasks became her responsibility. I could trust her to bring my best interests to any and all discussions; I knew she had my back through the entire process. I couldn't ask for anything more." - Ben
