How do I know if Collaborative Divorce is right for me?

If you have a commitment to finding a resolution with your spouse then the next step is to talk to a collaborative divorce lawyer to learn more about the process and your divorce.

The best way to find out if this is going to work for you is to sit down and talk with a trained collaborative lawyer who will inform you in much greater depth than we can now about what each of the conflict-resolution options is like and what Collaborative Divorce offers that other models may not perhaps offer in terms of what’s important to you as you go through the breakdown of your marriage. A Collaborative Divorce process works for most people who have a commitment to reaching their own solutions, rather than having judges telling them what to do.
