How Does It Work
Collaborative law is an alternate dispute resolution model to resolve conflict during a divorce. Each person has his or her own Collaborative lawyer working toward achieving settlement during joint meetings which are settlement focused. These meetings are designed so you have the support and guidance of your own lawyer, but the process does not create an adversarial environment among the lawyers. Rather, it creates an environment that feels productive and fair. At times, there are many emotional aspects during a divorce that can feel difficult to manage. Collaboratively trained divorce coaches help manage and guide the couple and/or family through the transition. Child specialists can lend their expertise in maintaining the child’s voice and helping a family assess the best needs of their children. A Collaborative financial specialist can work within this model to assist the family with financial health by helping with the transition. Divorce and finances can be a challenge and experts who are trained to help you to resolve these issues within the model are crucial to the process.
