Collaborative Divorce: A Different Approach To Divorce
Collaborative Divorce is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) built on the belief that by working with your spouse and drawing on interdisciplinary resources, couples can build more effective parenting plans that better serve the interests of the entire family.
When couples enter into the collaborative divorce process, they pledge that they will not resort to litigation, removing court involvement as an option in order to help them stay motivated to find their own solutions. Working together with their attorneys and experts from a variety of fields, such as tax experts and child development specialists, they construct plans for the future that protect their assets and set the family up for success.
