What Makes Collaborative Practice Different?

One of the best things about collaborative practice is that it is a private process, done far away from the courts, that can still result in a complete and legal Settlement Agreement.

You and your spouse will set the agenda and the pace of the process. You will have access to mental health and child support services that will help keep emotions at a minimum to address your child support and child custody issues and concerns. Your financial neutral will help you develop budgets and address the multitude of complex financial issues that can emerge during a divorce.

During the collaborative divorce process, you and your spouse will have your own separate attorneys, while the mental health and financial neutrals will serve both individuals. Best of all, with your settlement agreement already completed, any court time will be minimal! It’s usually only a 15-minute hearing to finalize your uncontested divorce.
