A collaborative divorce should be the right fit for every couple facing the end of their relationship. By working with a small team of professionals, you and your spouse/partner will have all the support and guidance you need to address and resolve every conflict and issue of your dissolution. Custody, support and the accounting for and division of your assets and debts are handled in a confidential, non-adversarial and efficient matter. A successful collaborative case requires couples to make a promise and commitment to always put the best interests of the children first and to sign a contractual Participation Agreement that couples will not immediately go to court to engage in destructive, divisive and expensive litigation.
Clients who chose to have a collaborative divorce may still be as angry, frustrated, hurt and confused as anyone going through a divorce. However, the difference is the clients make a choice to engage in a divorce process that is centered on protecting children, fosters client-oriented decision making and lays the foundation for the family’s new future.
