Resolution Without Going to Court
A practice called Collaborative Family Law (CFL) can spare you and your family time, money and stress by avoiding court, and embracing a collaborative rather than adversarial solution to the legal issues that arise as a relationship ends.
CFL is driven by family law attorneys who encourage both parties to come a resolution out of court through good faith efforts, over the course of a series of meetings.
If CFL doesn't allow the parties to come to a resolution, they can file a lawsuit in court, but any discussions and negotiations during the CFL process are inadmissible.
A Family Lawyer Who Fights for The Best Possible Outcome
Collaborative family law allows you to control your own meetings and negotiations, rather than this schedule being driven by a court. It can result in a better relationship on both sides and a more amicable resolution.
At Blackwell & Edwards, we support spouses in Fayetteville, Fort Bragg, and Cumberland County interested in collaborative family law.
We strive to reach a resolution that all parties are happy with without the need to go to court.

"Mr. Edwards gave me excellent representation! I always felt he was available to listen to me and answer all of the questions that I had. He seemed to care about my individual case, and I could always count on him to be prepared and ready for our appointments.
Mr. Edwards was extremely knowledgeable and obviously has had a ton of experience with family law. His staff is also wonderful. Diane (his front office person) was so kind and pleasant every time I was there. She always greeted me with a smile and helped ease my nerves and anxiety.
