Our firm also provides services in the area of Collaborative Law (also referred to as Collaborative Practice, Collaborative Divorce or Collaborative Divorce Process).
Part of Collaborative Law involves the Collaborative Divorce Process. The Collaborative Divorce Process is an alternative to traditional divorce through litigation. The main difference between Collaborative Divorce and litigation is a pledge to reach a settlement without going to court. The process involves client-centered negotiations that are private and confidential. With the assistance of an interdisciplinary team, you and your spouse maintain control of the decisions yourselves, as opposed to giving up the decision making power to a judge. To accomplish this objective, all of the parties must consent in writing to be part of a respectful process that leads to an out-of-court settlement of the matter. Settlement of the matter is facilitated through a series of face-to-face meetings with you, your spouse and your respective lawyers and other advisors as needed.
