Hugh O’Donnell is especially skilled in divorce mediation and the collaborative divorce method. Both methods aim for more peaceful dissolution of the marriage, with the best possible outcome for all parties involved. These processes also keep the decision-making power in the hands of the divorce couple rather than ceding it to a judge, as well as cost savings, time savings and less stress in addition to many other advantages.
In divorce mediation, a divorce or divorced couple works to create solutions rather than turning over that power to a judge who does not know them or their circumstances as well as they do. Trust and cooperation between spouses are key factors for divorce mediation success. Furthermore, collaborative divorce offers the added benefit of having an attorney who represents you throughout the process. Collaborative divorce also includes the assistance of mental health professionals and financial planners to help ease the emotional and financial toll associated with divorce.
Hugh O’Donnell has more than 40 years of experience in family law, including mediation and collaborative divorce. In fact, Hugh introduced the concept of collaborative divorce to Missouri and Kansas.
