What is Cooperative Family Law

Cooperative Family Law is a unique process developed by the Judnich Law Office, designed to take as much of the stress and time out of family law as possible. For those who are ready and willing to sit down at the table together and work through their issues, our family attorneys in Missoula and Bozeman can help you get from start to finish on your family law case — all in one day.

We offer Cooperative Family Law sessions for divorce and parenting plans, and can complete both processes together.

Cooperative Divorce at Judnich Law

Our approach to divorce resolution shares similarities with traditional mediation, but offers an improved solution. In our cooperative divorce sessions, we facilitate discussions between you and your spouse, providing guidance and presenting options to help you both reach an agreement when facing obstacles. Our team offers expertise on legal matters and potential judicial outcomes, avoiding the need for separate representation from attorneys and mediation services.

We work with both parties, addressing individual objectives and working towards a comprehensive resolution in a single session, including the division of assets and the development of a parenting plan (if applicable). With our cooperative divorce approach, you can efficiently and effectively navigate the divorce process.

  • Helps you maintain a good relationship with your soon-to-be ex-spouse: A cooperative divorce approach simplifies the divorce procedure and facilitates a positive resolution for both partners.

Cooperative parenting sessions

Every family is unique and has different needs. A one-size-fits-all parenting plan won’t work for everyone. That’s why we offer a personalized approach, crafted with input from both parents to ensure it fits your family perfectly. By having a tailored parenting plan in place, you can avoid time-consuming court battles that end up harming your family.

In this process, you will work with two experienced attorneys to help address any disagreements or uncertainties. Our team does not take sides and instead provides impartial guidance on legal matters, including interpretation of parenting plans by local courts, child support calculation, and more. You will have a clear understanding of the process and the outcome, enabling you to focus on what truly matters: your children’s well-being.
