Cooperative Divorce

Ms. Carney is committed to obtaining the best possible results when mediation and collaborative divorce are not appropriate options. Cooperative divorce is a divorce process in which both parties enter the process with the reasoned expectation of settlement. Much like collaborative divorce, cooperative divorce fosters a framework of efficiency and cooperation. Parties are urged to agree on experts thus limiting necessary expenditures and are part of a process that fosters the free exchange of information and avoids unnecessary formality whenever possible.

A cooperative approach to divorce will be more effective or suitable in situations when circumstances prohibit the use of an alternative dispute resolution method or when mediation or collaborative divorce is not ideal for resolving the issues. Ms. Carney will help you evaluate your options to determine whether a cooperative approach is best for you. Ms. Carney will help you achieve your goals by negotiating effectively on your behalf and by keeping any potential conflict to a minimum.


She handles a broad range of legal matters involving family law issues. These family law matters include:

  • Divorce
  • Alimony
  • Custody and Parenting Time
  • Child Support
  • Equitable Distribution
  • Prenuptial Agreements
  • Cohabitation Agreements
  • Postnuptial Agreement
  • Post-judgment Issues

Ms. Carney is a dedicated family law practitioner and is experienced in representing clients both inside and outside of the courtroom. She represents clients in divorce matters whether complex or relatively straightforward and is sensitive to your goals and to the needs of both you and your children.
