Court Family Law Practice

Family Law

Collaborative Family Law

Gary Norris is a member of the Ventura County Collaborative Family Law Professionals and trained in the court-approved divorce resolution process in which the attorneys and parties work together to resolve your case without legal conflict or court battles. In fact, the parties commit as part of the process not to go to court at all.

All proceedings are conducted in private and the non-adversarial process allows the parties to discuss real needs and concerns, instead of focusing on legal technicalities.

The process also allows for an environment for a more positive resolution for parents and children. All negotiation is conducted in face-to-face four-way meetings where all necessary information is openly exchanged and honestly discussed.
