Choose How You Divorce

At ROAD to RESOLUTION we believe you can and should dissolve your marriage without destroying your family or depleting your financial resources.

Collaborative Divorce

A Collaborative Divorce is a process that fosters amicable resolutions without resorting to litigation. This approach encourages open communication and cooperation between the parties involved, promoting a respectful resolution that is less adversarial for all involved.

Traditional Divorce

In addition to Collaborative Divorce, ROAD to RESOLUTION is well-versed in traditional and family law processes. We can guide clients through conventional uncontested legal procedures, ensuring their rights and interests are protected.


For less complicated cases, we provide mediation services, acting as neutral third parties to facilitate productive communication between divorcing spouses. Mediation can help resolve disputes and achieve mutually satisfactory agreements in a more efficient and cost-effective manner.

"I was referred to Robin and her team as experts in Collaborative Divorce. I wasn’t familiar with Collaborative, and after learning more, it was the best fit for me as I wanted the focus on our child and what was the most fair. Robin and Haley provided great advice and help us reach an agreement when I thought it wasn’t possible. Great team and very caring! Grateful for their help and support during a very difficult time."


Former Client

"I was referred to Road to Resolution, and I engaged Robin and the R2R team for help with my divorce. Robin and her team were AMAZING to work with! At times, I doubted that collaborative divorce was a realistic option for me. But Robin proved me wrong. She demonstrated it is possible to avoid court, reach a FAIR and private agreement, and protect everyone’s best interests, even in the most emotionally charged situations. R2R worked with me to minimize my legal fees, represented me in mediation, and ALWAYS acted in my best interest. I applaud Robin, Toni, and Donnie for their efforts. For anyone who is wondering, collaborative divorce truly is a new beginning, and thanks to Robin and the R2R team, I am living life to the fullest."

"I feel so lucky and blessed to have found Robin and her team at Road to Resolution at a time I felt most vulnerable. My husband and I made the tough decision to divorce, but we still had a lot of love and respect for each other and wanted to make sure we had the right people helping us during that difficult time. From the moment we met Robin, I knew we were in the right hands to go through the separation and divorce process while remaining kind, respectful, and collaborative. With her expert legal guidance and coaching, we reached an amicable agreement in less than 45 days from start to sign-off. I highly recommend this team."

Robin and her team were amazing. I had many questions during the process and they always responded quickly and were so patient! I always had the utmost confidence in Robin and it was reassuring to know there was someone there to guide me through each step.

Rebecca M.

Former Client

ROAD to RESOLUTION represented me in a simple divorce case back in 2018. During the process, my husband passed away. We were not divorced and left me with some of his financial issues. They took my case from divorce to helping finalize his estate affairs. ROAD to RESOLUTION is extremely helpful both professionally and personally during this tragic time in my family’s life. I can’t thank them enough, and would recommend them to anyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

ROAD to RESOLUTION is not your traditional divorce law firm. Below, we answer some frequently asked questions, but we encourage you to call to determine if Collaborative Law is the right approach for you.

What is Collaborative family law?

Collaborative Family Law is a dispute resolution process in which divorcing or separating parties work together with their respective attorneys to reach a settlement outside of court. It emphasizes open communication, transparency, and a commitment to finding mutually agreeable solutions.

How does collaborative family law differ from traditional litigation?

In Collaborative Family Law, the parties and their attorneys sign a participation agreement, committing to resolve the issues without resorting to court. Unlike traditional litigation, where a judge makes the final decisions, Collaborative Law empowers the parties involved to make their own agreements.

Who typically participates in the Collaborative Process?

The primary participants in the Collaborative Process are the divorcing or separating parties and their respective Collaborative attorneys. Additionally, other professionals, such as financial specialists, mental health professionals, or child specialists, can serve as neutral third parties and may be involved to provide support.

How long does the Collaborative Process take?

The duration of the Collaborative Process depends on the complexity of the issues involved and the parties’ ability to reach agreements. It can take several months to a year or more, but it is generally faster than traditional litigation.
