Divorce Without War® is pleased to announce the opening of a new North Tampa location in Florida. Founded in 1992, Divorce Without War® offers peaceful, affordable alternatives for individuals and couples facing transition and divorce. The North Tampa location is owned by Derek S. Lucas, an experienced attorney with extensive knowledge of family law.
Divorce Without War® attorneys are highly trained mediators. With this expertise, they guide individuals and couples through the divorce process, facilitating fair, legally sound agreements, and preparing all necessary legal documents. All of this occurs in a confidential, supportive and neutral setting.
“For most people, the prospect of dissolving a marriage is perhaps the most traumatic experience of their lives. Fear, hostility, guilt, depression, anger and insecurity are among the range of emotions commonly experienced by people facing divorce. They are vulnerable to anyone who can offer them assurances of victory, and are often receptive to suggestions that reinforce hostility toward their spouse,” said Derek S. Lucas, Owner of Divorce Without War® North Tampa office. “That’s where we come in. Our vision at Divorce Without War® is to help couples achieve a peaceful, low-cost, and legally smart divorce, while maintaining positive relationships, dignity and emotional wellness for themselves, their family and loved ones.”
Divorce Without War® recognizes the importance of each participant’s concerns, best interests, needs and priorities. Couples are provided with an appropriate, private, out-of-court setting to discuss options and potential next steps. This is the best opportunity for a couple to dictate the terms of their own divorce with sound legal guidance from one experienced attorney acting as a mediator. Divorce Without War® fees are a fraction of the cost to hire two attorneys to commence and defend a lawsuit. The emotional and financial well-being of the couple and the couple’s family are top priorities to Divorce Without War®.
