The Collaborative Process
A BETTER WAY to Separate or Divorce
A NO COURT approach to
Separation and Divorce
Within the Collaborative Process, the professionals and the parties involved commit to Working Together for Better Solutions. In order to fully support the parties in settling their issues and reaching an agreement, the lawyers, other professionals, and parties all sign a participation agreement (sample coming soon), to agree to the way they will work together. Under this agreement, the professionals are disqualifed from assisting the parties in the event the matter proceeds to Court.
“Although finalizing the custody agreement and divorce was one big part of why I engaged in the Collaborative Process, having a chance to understand the law and have my questions answered was another big part. I feel less vulnerable and better equipped to handle the future.” – Laurel B.
