COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE


A DIGNIFIED ALTERNATIVE
TO LITIGATION


FOR FAMILIES ADDRESSING:
Separation / Divorce
Child Custody / Visitation
Spousal Support / Child Support
Property Division

The essence of "Collaborative Law" is the participants' shared belief that it is in the best interest of clients and their families, to resolve their differences without resorting to litigation.

The collaborative approach uses an interdisciplinary team approach that integrates the legal, emotional, and financial aspects of divorce. Based on the concept of generating the most favorable outcome for all family members, especially children, the collaborative team assists in resolving conflict using cooperative strategies rather than adversarial techniques and litigation. This approach allows the parties to remain in control of the transformative process while playing the key role in creating realistic and successful outcomes.
