Ariel B. Winger, Attorney at Law

As an experienced family law attorney and mediator, my goal is to help you minimize the emotional, financial, and logistical stress of your divorce and facilitate a resolution that results in the best possible outcome for all involved.

I offer non-adversarial, out-of-court options that are private, confidential, cooperative, and cost-efficient. Available services include Mediation, Collaborative Practice (CP) Divorce, and Limited Scope assistance designed to reduce the adversarial and combative nature often associated with a traditional, court-based divorce.

I work with married and unmarried couples and parents, same-sex and Domestic Partners, and my practice welcomes traditional, blended, and LGBTQ families.

Non-adversarial options can be used in all areas of family law, including:

  • Dissolution of Marriage (divorce)
  • Dissolution of Domestic Partnership
  • Parentage/Paternity (unmarried parents)
  • Parenting Plans (child custody and visitation)
  • Child Support, Spousal/Partner Support
  • Community Property Division (real property, retirement benefits, business interests, debt, etc.)
