Collaborative Divorce is the alternative to the traditional divorce. It enables parties to get a divorce without the “gotcha” tactics of traditional litigation. It enables parties to come up with a solution for their family that is best for their unique situation.
In a Collaborative Divorce, the parties can select two collaboratively-trained divorce attorneys that can help them resolve their issues without going to court. They can also select different professionals for their team, such as financial professionals, mental-health professionals, and child specialists to enable them to achieve a better result.
It’s also your agreement. You have control of the divorce process. The parties decide what their divorce agreement will be, not a judge. With Collaborative Divorce, you can be divorced with your dignity, self-respect, and emotional well being intact.
