Collaborative Divorce uses an interdisciplinary team of professionals who work together with the parties to help find solutions that work for everyone. Collaboration provides people in conflict with individual support and expert guidance. And it promotes cooperation and civility along the way.
To better serve the parties, Collaborative Divorce also leverages the expertise of other professionals. In addition to the attorneys, neutral subject matter experts in areas such as finance, family dynamics, parenting and business valuation (based on the unique needs of each couple), may be added to the collaborative team. The result is efficient and valuable expertise and neutral support for both parties.
Like mediation, collaboration empowers the parties to decide for themselves the terms of any agreement they reach. It does not guarantee mutual agreement. But it offers a highly supportive process that promotes efficiency, respect and cooperation.
Collaborative Divorce is perfect for parties who wish to maintain control of the outcome of their dispute, preserve the relationships of the parties, protect their children from unnecessary acrimony, and who value expert professional support and advice along the way.
