Collaborative law is a non-adversarial approach to resolving the issues in a divorce or other family situation without Court intervention. The collaborative participants will use a team of professionals to help achieve a healthy result unique to each family’s situation. The participants engage in comforting and age-appropriate planning for the children and learn the most effective use of the family’s financial resources. Each participant has his or her own legal advocates and counseling professionals to guide the parties through the process toward the parties’ expressed goals and best solutions.
Clients often find the collaborative divorce process less stressful because they have more direct input into shaping their future and the future of their children. We recognize, however, that the collaborative process may not be the best for some divorcing couples. Every couple’s situation is unique, and our collaboratively trained attorneys will work with you to understand your particular situation and determine what approach is best for you.
