Redefining Family Law One Case at a Time

Shulman Family Law Group handles complex divorces and related family law issues with confidence, confidentiality and a client-focused approach.



Out of Court Resolutions

& Private Judging

Courts are not the place to be! Taking a case to court means leaving critical, life-impacting decisions to the whim of a judge, and losing control over the outcome. There are other alternatives. We’ll work to find the  option that serves you and your family the best!

Resolving Divorce Out Of Court

Dissolving a marriage is naturally a stressful process. Many people find the adversarial experience of going to court to get divorced exacerbates bad feelings in an already-difficult time and can result in ongoing tension in their post-divorce life.

Mediation is good for many divorcing couples

Mediation is an alternative for divorce proceedings if couples do not want to go through traditional litigation. Mediation has many benefits, which is why it is a popular choice.

THE PROCESS FOR USING A PRIVATE JUDGE – It’s more “attainable/within reach” than you think.

I think it’s reasonable to say that getting a divorce can be quite emotionally taxing and test anyone’s patience.
