Collaborative law offers an opportunity to obtain the divorce without litigation, which can preserve valuable financial and emotional resources. When children are involved the Collaborative process also protects your children and helps you begin developing the co-parenting relationship with your spouse that your children desperately need. Throughout the Collaborative law process you will have the assistance of attorneys, a mental health professional, and a financial professional who will work with you and your spouse to create solutions and outcomes that consider the interests of all family members.
