Many people believe that the Collaborative Process works only for those who are amicable and who agree on almost all issues. In fact, this process is ideal for those cases where communication has broken down, where trust is low and where many issues remain to be resolved. Coming to agreement when people look at things differently and are under stress is challenging. This popular and comprehensive dispute resolution process is a powerful alternative to litigation. It works well for those who are willing to try a new way to resolve conflict, to listen, to be open, and to work to find a better resolution. You also have the benefit of legal advice available to you while you’re working. It can empower you to make better choices for your future and your family more confidently and it happens in a safe and private environment.
