Couples Dispute Resolution

Are you in a dispute with your spouse or significant other? Is your relationship otherwise good—just one little problem, so you don’t think marriage counseling is worth it? Maybe it is whether to buy a house, start a business, relocate, take in an elderly parent—you name it. If you have reached an impasse in your discussion with your life partner, there is another option: discussing the issue with a neutral third party facilitator. At the Tull Law Firm, when we work with you to solve couples disputes, we’re not here to determine right or wrong—we’re here to set some ground rules, enforce the rules and keep your discussion on track.

Our couples dispute resolution practice is not for the broad problems that could end a marriage or other relationship and that are best handled by a professional marriage counselor. When you and your spouse or significant other have been unable to come to a resolution about a relationship issue and have thus far been unsuccessful, we can help you work through it. If the matter is big enough that you and your spouse or significant other are worried about an open and frank discussion of the issues, you need to seek the help of a professional counselor.

The techniques we use as lawyers at the Tull Law Firm, PLLC are the same as those used in every organization to settle internal disputes. We are merely applying those same techniques and principals to disputes of equals who are in a relationship. It is a rather simple process and usually only takes a few hours to find a settlement or to determine the parties have deeper issues and need to move on marital counseling.

If you are in committed relationship that is otherwise good that you feel might be a candidate for this informal means of resolution, please give us a call at 615.530.5719 or use any of the other means on the Contact Us page. We would like to assist you in finding a resolution.
