Collaborative Divorce is a series of meetings for separating or divorcing couples to resolve disputes without litigating in court. The couple controls the results. Your team of collaborative professionals guides and protects you as you resolve financial, legal, custody and emotional issues, while preserving the dignity and integrity of all family members.
Couples agree to select a neutral financial specialist. Each partner chooses his/her own collaborative attorney and licensed mental health professional (“Divorce Communications Coach”). A neutral child specialist assists with co-parenting effectiveness, facilitating the best interests of the children, and limiting the adverse impact of divorce on children. The professional team works together to help each couple generate outcomes to suit their family’s unique needs.
Your team of collaborative professionals works in specific combinations to avoid duplicating efforts, and to ensure couples receive the particular expertise needed. Couples using this process find that their agreements are more satisfying and long-lasting. In addition, co-parenting relationships are typically more effective for families who have used the collaborative divorce process.
