Collaborative Law


Collaborative law is a legal process where attorneys and clients agree to resolve their divorce, child custody, co-parenting issues, division of assets, and other disputes through cooperative strategies and without court involvement. Collaborative Law is unique in that it provides professionals specially trained in the collaborative process to assist parties through the divorce process more efficiently and effectively. Specially trained attorneys, mental health professionals called “divorce coaches,” and financial experts are available to provide the critical legal, emotional support, and financial resources needed. Thus, allowing the parties to better manage the short and long term effects of the divorce on them and their children.
