Divorce, Legal Separation & Dissolution of Domestic Partnerships
Rhe Zinnecker applies collaborative, sustainable practices to couples who turn to her for counsel when their relationship is at an end.  Rhe offers help to people who want to proceed without attorneys, and to those who want to set aside their emotions and communicate effectively with each other to reach sustainable agreements in the following areas:

Property/Assets Division – Watching your assets change from "ours" to "mine and yours" can be traumatic, and many people feel they are losing their hard-earned financial security. Rhe can help you cope with this challenge. Rhe can also help if it becomes necessary to enforce an asset distribution.

Parenting/Custody Disputes – If you have children you will need to agree
to a Parenting Plan that meticulously schedules which parent will be responsible for the children at specific times. Rhe offers expertise to clients and couples regarding the parenting plan.  

Child/Spousal Support – If you have minor children, your marriage cannot be ended until you address the issue of child support.  Similarly, in some situations it is appropriate for one spouse to provide monthly support to the other for a period of time.  Rhe can help you understand how to address both of these issues in a manner that works for all parties involved and is within the framework contemplated under the law.

Divorce Attorney Rhe Zinnecker offers expertise in the following approaches to resolving the issues specific to your relationship:

Collaborative DivorceRhe is trained in the collaborative divorce model. This means she can help you settle your differences with your spouse in a respectful process, often using other professionals to help craft imaginative solutions designed to fit your family needs. When both parties work together to find the best solutions, both parties are generally more satisfied with the results.

MediationSometimes any attempt at conversation swiftly dissolves into a shouting match when people are facing divorce. Couples who need a neutral third party to help them sit down together to work out their differences can turn to Rhe as a divorce mediator. Rhe helps you remain civil with one another while you discuss very difficult issues in your divorce, while providing a framework and options for reaching agreements about property, support and parenting.
