Cleland Collaborative Divorce

Cleland Collaborative Divorce provides out-of-court divorce options. It is founded on the idea that communication, collaboration and client education are vital to a better divorce process and better results. Our mission is to improve how people in our community achieve and think about divorce. As part of this mission, we strongly encourage people to consider using our out-of-court methods for resolving divorces and other family related disputes: mediation and collaborative practice.

For those facing an in-court divorce, we focus on protecting our client’s interests in the courtroom while helping them to stay out of court as much as possible.

No matter whether our clients face an in-court or out-of-court divorce, our approach is the same: empowering our clients to become confident and informed decision makers. 

If you are facing divorce, we encourage you learn about the advantages mediation and collaborative practice can have for you and your children. We also have additional resources, information and our founder’s blog, The Collaborative Mindset, which we hope you will find helpful.

Contact us for a free consultation. We are happy to speak with you about our approach, discuss your options, and help you decide what's best for you and your family.
