Collaborative Divorce & Family Matter Resolution

Divorce and complex family matters can be challenging. The traditional solution has often involved litigation and relying on a court decision. Alternatively, collaborative dispute resolution process offers couples and families a solution based on respectful and transparent negotiations. The goal is to reach a mutual settlement with the support of collaboratively trained professionals. The collaborative process result is often less destructive to relationships, more constructive toward outcomes, less financially and emotionally draining, and more controllable for both parties than a litigated dispute which is at the mercy of the court.

Collaborate. Don’t Litigate.

The collaborative  process can be applied to the same family disputes many feel must be solved through litigation, but offers the benefits of privacy, dignity, control, and mutual decisions. Litigation is a battle with a winner and a loser and no control of the outcome for either party. Alternatively, collaborative dispute resolution works to solve the dispute or divorce upon agreeable terms that take into account each client’s needs and the needs of children, elders, and other dependents.
