“Divorce with Dignity”
Divorce can be heart wrenching and difficult. However, it does not have to be if you contact Jim Saulsbury, an experienced divorce attorney whose office serves King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties. Jim Saulsbury helps his clients reduce the anxiety and stress of divorce. Jim guides men and women in dissolving a marital bond with respect and fairness using the cooperative process, mediation, arbitration or litigation
A Skilled Negotiator
Jim Saulsbury offers his clients a less combative way to divorce. There is no war and there are no court appearances. Instead, Jim Saulsbury works with respective clients and a possible team of a communications coach and a financial planner/CPA to negotiate and agree on child custody, visitation and the equitable division of their marital assets and debts.
Jim Saulsbury uses his talents in the art of negotiation and communication as well as a great sense of humor and compassion to help couples divorce with their dignity intact. Jim Saulsbury addresses each client’s concern over the small details and fine print in a divorce agreement with his extensive knowledge of family law. For example, a client may require a visitation agreement that deviates from the norm to meet a family’s demanding schedule. Jim Saulsbury designs a “parenting time plan” that facilitates the mother or father’s access to their children.
Clients Have Choices
Jim Saulsbury is a strong litigator who effectively articulates and argues for his clients’ interests in contested divorce cases. However, more often the parties in a divorce are willing to use a cooperative process, mediation or arbitration because of all the benefits. Jim Saulsbury’s clients certainly are presented with all the options. Those who chose to cooperate typically find it easier to move on with life after marriage, Jim Saulsbury explains.
“If you litigate a case, it’s much harder to bury the hatchet,” Jim Saulsbury says. “How can you put closure on something when a judge, who doesn’t even know you, makes all the final decisions regarding the children you love so very much and the assets both parties have worked so hard to acquire. On the other hand, mediation allows both sides to be winners. Everything is open for negotiation. I am able to meet many of my client’s needs, simply by scheduling a telephone conference or a working lunch with my opposing counsel. It’s amazing what you can achieve by simply getting together and opening the lines of communication.”
