Collaborative Divorce

What is Collaborative Practice?

Collaborative divorce provides both spouses with attorneys who agree to work cooperatively and constructively to find a mutually acceptable divorce agreement. Like divorce mediation, it utilizes specialists to help clients grasp their situation and make informed decisions.

Why Choose Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative practice provides people with more control over their divorce, reduced conflict and stress and a better adjustment to post-divorce life. It can deliver these results because it maximizes communication, collaboration and client education in divorce. If you are considering collaborative divorce, you likely already know about the benefits of communication and collaboration — and the disadvantages to litigating divorce in court.
