Traditionally, family law issues were litigated before the courts and a judge would make the final decision regarding all of the aspects of the case.  In recent decades, however, great advancements have been made in the field of Family Law which allow litigants to resolve their cases without being subject to the adversarial process of the courts.


These alternative methods are less stressful, less expensive and promote the preservation of relationships that must continue beyond the resolution of the case.  Sherry K. Myers prides herself on making these options available to all of its clients.  We will discuss these options with you in great detail so that you can make an informed decision on which option is right for you.
