This is where our collaborative professionals can help. Our trained collaborative law attorneys will do our best to help you to reach an agreement with your spouse (or the opposing party without) the stress of fighting a court battle, if that is possible.

In collaborative divorce and family law, both parties hire a collaborative attorney and meet outside of court to settle the terms of the divorce. Using the attorneys and other professionals (divorce coaches, financial neutrals, psychologists), spouse sit down and talk through matters. This allows the parties to reach an amicable agreement without a judge, who they don’t know, deciding what the terms of the divorce will be.
When spouses have children, a collaborative divorce can help to keep the divorce civil in order to help with the transition to post divorce life. Collaborative Divorce requires spouses to talk through difficult issues. This gives the parties more control of the critical issues like child custody, child support, and property division. This also allows the parties to make decisions for themselves instead of waiting for a judge. If the parties do end up deciding to go to court, they must hire different attorneys. Both parties must hire new trial attorneys before the case can go to trial.
