What is Collaborative Family Law?
Family issues - whether divorce, paternity, separation, or other family transitions are often sensitive and personal matters. No single approach is right for everyone. The collaborative practice is a welcome alternative to the destructive and uncomfortable aspects of conventional litigation. Choosing the collaborative process allows you to work through these sensitive and emotional issues together with a team designed to minimize conflict and create respectful solutions.
Nontraditional families may also find the Collaborative Process a helpful framework for reaching solutions and achieving an agreement.
People tend to work in teams, in a collaborative way, in an informal network. If you create an environment like that, it's much more effective and much more efficient. - Jim Mitchell
Is the Collaborative Process for me?
In deciding whether the collaborative process is right for you, consider:
- Do you want to maintain control over the process and the outcome?
- Is prioritizing the needs of your children paramount to you?
- Are you willing to work creatively and cooperatively to solve problems?
- Do you want to keep your personal and financial information private?
