The Collaborative Family Law Process

Divorce often conjures up images of nasty disputes between both parties. The Collaborative process, however, is a team approach to resolving legal issues.  Both spouses each engage a collaboratively trained lawyer and work together through a series of four-way meetings to arrive at a mutually satisfactory Separation Agreement.

Promoting constructive dialogue between couples in order to achieve their desired outcomes is a key reason that the Collaborative practice has been gaining traction over the past several years.

It’s not surprising. Working together stands in sharp contrast to contested divorces which are public, time consuming, and much more expensive.
