Collaborative Family Practice : Let's collaborate!

Collaborative Divorce is a process in which both parties and counsel commit themselves to resolve differences fairly, equitably, in a respectful manner without resort, or threat of resort, to the courts.

In recent years more and more family law attorneys and divorcing couples have been drawn to this process as a cost-efficient and respectful way of reaching agreements that work for both of the parties and their families.

The collaborative process includes a mental health facilitator who helps keep the process on track, consults to the parties and the attorneys regarding wellness and stress concerns throughout the divorce experience and is available to assist in developing appropriate Parenting Plans for families with children.
