Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative Divorce is a new option for separated or divorcing couples to resolve disputes respectfully and equitably without going to court. The effects of divorce on children and the quality of life after divorce are especially relevant in Collaborative Divorce.

This is a solution-oriented approach for clients who are determined to prevent permanent damage to relationships — even difficult relationships. Characterized by dignity and fairness, Collaborative Divorce is especially useful in divorce, child custody, estate matters, and civil disputes.

The Collaborative Divorce process is not appropriate in all cases. The separated couple must be willing to meet face to face and be dedicated to working toward a fair settlement in good faith.
