Collaborative Divorce

In Collaborative Practice, the parties hire a small team of professionals to help them through the divorce. Each party first hires a settlement attorney. These attorneys’ sole focus is on helping the clients negotiate a resolution, while still advocating for each client’s legal rights and interests. The Attorneys recommend one Financial Neutral and a Facilitator. The Financial Neutral assists with asset and debt distribution, and negotiating cash-flow issues like alimony and child support. The Facilitator is a trained mental health professional, who acts as a coach to guide the parties through the emotional roadblocks that arise in a divorce. The discovery process is still used to gather necessary information, but the parties and the professionals meet together to discuss possibilities and to negotiate outcomes. If an agreement is reached, the parties sign an agreement that resolves all matters.  If no agreement can be reached, then the parties can still pursue traditional litigation and a trial.
