She realizes that it is often in the children’s best interest to settle the divorce, rather than have the parties continually battle in court.

ATTORNEY ELIZABETH A. EDWARDS is a respected Wilton attorney who practices collaborative divorce & mediation to help parting couples restructure their families without the added pain often involved in going to court.

If either party goes to court unilaterally, both attorneys have to withdraw and the parties retain new counsel. Elizabeth has 30 years of experience and is quick to point out that collaborative divorce settlements continue to grow as parties learn about the many benefits this option provides, especially where children are involved. Her practice includes divorce, real estate, wills, trusts, probate and estates.
