We are skilled Collaborative Divorce attorneys and are here to guide you through the Collaborative process and help you achieve a peaceful resolution.

What is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative Divorce is a dispute resolution process that focuses on resolving legal issues through cooperation and negotiation rather than going to court and asking a judge to resolve those questions. It provides an opportunity for you and your spouse to work together and find mutually beneficial solutions while avoiding the adversarial nature of traditional court proceedings.

We believe in the power of collaboration. Our attorneys are trained to help you engage in open, honest, and constructive communication to facilitate problem-solving and reach fair agreements. By choosing Collaborative Divorce, you take control of the process and actively work towards finding the best outcome for you, your spouse, and your family.

How Does Collaborative Divorce Work?

The Collaborative Divorce process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: During the initial meeting, you will have the opportunity to discuss your legal issues and determine if it is the right approach for you. We will explain the process in detail and answer any questions you may have.
  2. The Collaborative Team: In a Collaborative Divorce, a team will be assembled to support you and your spouse in resolving your dispute. This team will include your attorneys, divorce coach, a neutral financial specialist, and any other experts who can provide valuable insights for your decision making process.
  3. Team Meetings: The core of Collaborative Divorce involves a series of meetings, where you, your spouse and your collaborative team come together to discuss the relevant issues and options for resolution. These meetings are structured and guided by the Collaborative Divorce process, ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to be heard and that all issues are addressed.
  4. Negotiation and Agreement: Throughout the team meetings, negotiations take place to address the concerns and interests of both you and your spouse. We will help to guide you through the process, and to reach an agreement that is fair and meets both of your needs.
  5. Court Approval: After an agreement is reached, it is submitted to the court for approval. There is no requirement to appear in court.
