Collaborative Practice is a new option for divorcing couples to resolve disputes respectfully and equitably without going to court. The goal of collaborative practice is to help divorcing and separating couples to focus on their most important goals, especially children, throughout the divorce process. The process utilizes specialists who leverage their areas of expertise to address children's needs and the emotional and financial aspects of the divorce. Because clients agree not to go to court, the process is more open and less adversarial. The goal is to enhance communication throughout the process and lay the foundation for a healthier relationship after the divorce. The end result is a more efficient, targeted, and productive way to resolve disputes.
