Divorce is never easy. Family conflict can exhaust the emotional and financial resources of both spouses, and destroy any remaining respect between them. Especially when children are involved, this is a tragic way to end a relationship.
The traditional process of getting a lawyer, filing papers, engaging in "discovery," and going before a judge makes a difficult situation immeasurably worse. The Collaborative Practice Divorce provides an alternative that supports you with legal, emotional, and financial expertise.
If you and your spouse want to end your marriage with dignity and respect and the possibility of an ongoing relationship as co-parents or friends, Collaborative Practice Divorce is for you! There are alternatives, however. Several forms of Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) have been developed to assist couples to reach their own divorce agreements. If you and your spouse can make a fair and complete agreement using ADR, the Court will adopt it as your Final Decree.
