Your Collaborative Divorce Advocates
So — you’ve decided on divorce, but feel confident that you and your spouse can settle the matter amongst yourselves instead of entrusting a judge to decide your fate.

If collaborative divorce is right for you, our qualified team of attorneys is here to guide you through the entire process — from assembling your collaborative team to finalizing your divorce documents and establishing a solid foundation from which to launch your next chapter.
What Is Collaborative Divorce?
A cooperative legal process that empowers you and your spouse to negotiate the terms of your divorce with minimal court involvement. In a collaborative divorce, the goal is to reach an agreement that reflects both parties’ needs; there are no “winners” and “losers”, because everyone is on the same team.
A central feature of the collaborative process is a participation agreement — signed by both spouses and the legal team — promising to keep matters out of court. The participation agreement also requires transparency throughout the process between the divorcing parties, who are free to communicate openly knowing that nothing they say can be used against them in court.
Collaborative divorce includes regular meetings with your team, during which you and your spouse will have the opportunity to identify shared interests, discuss long-term goals, and brainstorm ways to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. Collaborative divorce is often less stressful than litigation, and it provides a framework for resolving disputes and building positive momentum for the future.
