I am a divorce coach and child specialist in Collaborative Practice. This is a process where both spouses and their attorneys commit themselves to resolving differences in a manner acceptable to both parties, without the threat of resorting to the court system or to any form of litigation.
Collaborative Practice relies on the commitment of the spouses and their attorneys to exercise honesty, cooperation, professionalism, and integrity in working towards the future well being of the family.
Collaborative Practice uses informal discussions and conferences attended by spouses and their attorneys to settle all issues. Major goals of the Collaborative Law process are to maximize settlement options for the benefit of both parties and children, and to minimize or eliminate the negative economic, social and emotional consequences of litigation.
Collaborative Practice enlists attorneys to help spouses arrive at a fully informed agreement, with confidence that relevant legal issues and ramifications have been explored and addressed.
