Description of Practice

Why Collaborative Law?

Collaborative Law is a voluntary dispute resolution process that encourages problem solving, communication and healthy co-parenting. Collaborative Law can empower couples to create lasting resolutions that fulfill their needs and the needs of their children.

Collaborative Law is a way for couples to re-structure their families without court intervention. Children often suffer harm when their parents are in conflict. Collaborative Law provides away for couples to divorce in a way that minimizes the harm to all family members.

In a Collaborative Law process, couples agree to resolve their disputes together, in a respectful manner, rather than having a judge decide important issues about their family. Each party works with a lawyer who has special training in techniques to help the couple design the best result possible resolution for their family.

Collaborative Law provides you and your spouse or partner with the support and guidance of your own lawyers without going to court. Additionally, Collaborative Law allows you the benefit of coaches, child and financial specialists all working together with you on your team.
