How I Help My Clients


Divorce can be a traumatic, life-altering process, and is often confusing, as well. When we’re in your corner for this very emotional challenge, Rebecca L. Palmer Law Group, will protect your legal rights and ensure that you know all of your available options.

Collaborative Law

In contrast to the adversarial nature of traditional litigation, which often leads to prolonged conflicts and strained family relationships, the collaborative law process focuses on preserving familial bonds by identifying shared objectives and priorities for each family member.At the core of the Collaborative Process lies a mutual understanding that opting for a non-litigious approach serves the best interests of the family unit. This method emphasizes cooperation, honesty, and professionalism to ensure a positive outcome that safeguards the family’s future well-being.The Collaborative Law Process follows a structured team-based model conducted in a confidential setting to promote open communication. This multidisciplinary team typically includes the spouses, their respective attorneys, a mental health professional, and a financial expert. The essence of this approach is encouraging all parties to engage constructively in discussions aimed at reaching a mutually beneficial resolution.While outcomes can vary depending on individual circumstances, collaborative law often offers a more efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional family law litigation. Typically, both spouses and their legal representatives commit to a “no court” collaborative agreement, outlining the rules of engagement and necessitating attorney withdrawal if a settlement cannot be reached, leading to court intervention.


In our law practice, we always pursue the most positive outcome for you. To that end, we may sometimes advise you to consider mediation, rather than take a case to trial. Mediation is a process where a third-party neutral, a professional mediator, listens to both parties and helps encourage and facilitate a resolution. When mediation is the best option, we will be by your side through the entire process to advise you.


Alimony is a legal obligation to provide financial support to a spouse; it is often very complex and a high point of contention in dissolution of marriage proceedings. At Rebecca L. Palmer Law Group, we have the experience and resources required to serve as your staunch advocate in pursuit of alimony that you’re entitled to in a divorce.

Child Custody

There are few processes as emotional and complex as determining custody of minor children in the wake of a divorce. At Rebecca L. Palmer Law Group, we are sensitive to both the human and legal issues involved in child custody cases, and will bring all of our experience to bear when fighting to secure your rightful place the lives of your children.
