What is Collaborative Law?

YOU CAN DIVORCE WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT – AND STAY OUT OF COURT

Separation and divorce is never easy. Choosing the right process can make all the difference. The Collaborative divorce process strives to reach agreements that benefit the entire family. With the help of trained legal, financial and mental health professionals, conflict is reduced and you avoid the economic and emotional strain of litigation.

The process is client-driven, rather than attorney-driven. Each person’s goals are identified and disagreements are resolved using an interest-based, problem solving approach.

There is no pain-free way to end a marriage, but the Collaborative divorce process allows you and your partner to create an environment in which you and your children can thrive.
