Collaborative Process


Collaborative Divorce is a series of meetings for a separating or divorcing couple to resolve disputes, without litigating in court. Couples control the results. A team of collaborative professionals guides and protects couples as they resolve emotional, financial, custody and legal issues, while preserving the dignity and integrity of all family members.

Couples agree to a neutral financial specialist and each partner selects his/her own collaborative attorney and licensed mental health professional (“coach”). A neutral child specialist may assist with learning about the best interests of the children. The professional team works together to help each couple generate outcomes to suit their family’s unique needs. Couples using this process find that their agreements are more satisfying and long lasting.

Pasadena Collaborative Divorce (PCD) professionals are specifically trained in the collaborative process.
