Collaborative law treats divorcing couples as if they have a series of issues to be resolved instead of a destructive war to be fought.

Good candidates for the collaborative law process share some of the same goals, including:

The desire by both parties to reduce stress, animosity and bad feelings.

The desire to communicate effectively between partners without assigning blame.

The desire to share control and retain ownership of the decision-making process.

The desire to achieve results taking everyone’s needs into account so everyone “wins”

The desire to prevent children from being caught in the middle of destructive conflict.

The desire to protect privacy and avoid personal matters entering the public record.

The desire to preserve money for the future rather than waste it fighting about the past.

The desire to create an agreement that has a good chance of being kept long-term.

The desire to preserve what is good in a relationship and build from there.

The desire to accomplish this life transition in a civil and respectful manner.

If you and your spouse are committed to resolving your issues together and you can communicate openly and honestly, then the collaborative process might be a good option for you. Ask us how we can help.
