Collaborative Divorce is an increasingly popular alternative to the traditional divorce process, in which specially trained attorneys help the parties negotiate a divorce in a respectful, humane, and non-adversarial manner. The parties seek to reach a mutually agreeable resolution by maintaining open communication, voluntarily sharing information, and engaging other professionals (for example, financial planners, accountants, or parenting experts) as needed. An important feature that sets Collaborative Divorce apart from a more traditional approach to divorce is that the attorneys’ representation terminates upon the filing of any contested court proceeding. This removes the threat of litigation from the negotiation process and allows the parties to focus on shared, interest-based resolutions in which goals are set for the highest priorities (for example, ensuring that the children stay in the marital home so they don’t have to change schools).

Attorney Eric Goldwarg is one of a small but growing number of trained Collaborative Divorce attorneys in Montana. He is a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP). Learn more about Collaborative Divorce on the IACP website.

What Our Clients Say

I worked with Luebeck, Hammar, McCarty & Goldwarg for over 2 years after my father's sudden death in 2014. Since my father passed unexpectedly, he died without a will. The amount of stress that accompanied the grief my family felt was huge. I don't know what I would have gotten through this tough time if it weren't for Luebeck, Hammar, McCarty & Goldwarg and their team of professionals. I met with them the day after my father's death and the next day they were on the case.   From that moment on, they provided expert advice and support. I could count on their team's help at any time. I cannot recommend their services highly enough. I would work with their team again in a heartbeat if the need arose.
