What is Collaborative Divorce

No single way of divorcing is right for every couple ending their marriage. Many today are seeking an alternative to conventional divorce, one that minimizes the time, expense and hostility that are so often a part of divorce.  Collaborative Divorce has been developed to provide individuals with a welcome alternative.

Collaborative Divorce is a process in which both parties and counsel commit themselves to resolve differences fairly, equitably, in a respectful manner without resort or threat of resort to the courts.

In recent years more and more family law attorneys and divorcing couples have been drawn to this process as a cost-efficient and respectful way of reaching agreements that work for both of the parties and their families.

Collaborative divorce is not your typical court-based, high-stress divorce. In fact, it is meant to resolve your divorce in a peaceful and respectful team-based approach:

  • (Time) Restructure relationships faster with less stress;
  • (Money) Preserve finances for both parents and children;
  • (Emotion) Reduce emotional tolls on family;
  • (Results) Customize “win-win” results for both spouses;
  • (Relationships) Preserve family relationships beyond divorce; and
  • (No Court Hearings) Keeping your matters private.
