Divorce & Family Law

At Rafanelli Kittredge, we understand that a divorce can be one of the most difficult and stressful times in a person’s life. With the knowledge that protracted litigation can exact a heavy toll on our clients, our goal is to resolve cases as fairly and expeditiously as possible. We believe most divorce and family law disputes can and should be resolved by reasoned negotiation that allows the parties to move on with dignity and self-respect.

We provide guidance and advice through every step of the process, enabling you to make the best decisions for you and your family. Recognizing that some cases cannot be settled, we are always prepared to represent our clients successfully at trial.

Mediation is an alternative to an adversarial divorce. When a dispute arises, whether it be a family, divorce or civil issue, people often assume that hiring attorneys and going to court is the only way to resolve the problem. While the court system does have its benefits, it can be expensive, time consuming, inefficient and most of all unpredictable. Mediation, on the other hand, allows the parties to reach an agreed-upon solution efficiently and amicably.
