Collaborative Divorce

A divorce does not have to go to court, and it does not have to be ugly. Collaborative family law considers at the whole family during a divorce, and puts the children first. With the help of specially trained professionals, you can not only complete a divorce outside of court, but you can gain more knowledge about positive communication and your financial future.Learn more.

“My first time going through my custody battle for my son was an awful experience. When I had to go back I found Meggin Rutherford. She was absolutely amazing. I have not met a lawyer who was as honest and upfront as she was. She was always very responsive when ever I had questions or concerns. She talked me through everything and made sure I understood what was happening and that I was ok with it. She never pushed me to go into a direction I was not comfortable with. Meggin was also extremely helpful with the costs of court. She was able to set up a payment plan for me so I could afford her. (I was a single Mom when I first met her and my budget was very tight.) She was absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend her to everyone I know.”  –Mother in Jefferson County
