Oak Brook, IL, United States, 2011/06/22 - The Oak Brook, IL divorce law firm of Kulerski and Cornelison has just set into motion Illinois’ version of Cooperative Divorce Law - IllinoisLegal.com.
Cooperative Divorce Law is a process that helps divorcing couples to minimize the pain and expense of marital dissolution. The cooperative approach is based on the same settlement philosophy as mediation and collaborative law. However, it goes a step further than collaborative law and permits the attorneys to go to court when their clients are unable to reach an out of court settlement.
“We have invited several divorce lawyers who are mediators and collaborative law practitioners to join us. To date, 26 attorneys in Cook and DuPage counties have elected to become part of this movement," said J. Richard Kulerski, one of the firm’s partners. "This program is another step toward helping people to manage the length, cost, and outcome of their divorce experience.”
Kulerski goes on to explain that,“While collaborative law divorces are cooperative, cooperative law divorces are not collaborative. Cooperative divorce law is its own, distinct divorce settlement model; it not just another way of characterizing a divorce as being collaborative or friendly.”
Law partners, Richard Kulerski and Kari L. Cornelison, are seasoned litigators with over 60 years of combined trial experience in the divorce courts of Cook, DuPage, and Will Counties, Illinois. They are also staunch advocates for the anti-war approach to divorce.
Both Richard and Kari are trained divorce mediators and collaborative law practitioners who believe that going to divorce court should be a last resort. They are seeking like-minded attorneys to join them in developing this newest approach to divorce.
