Collaborative Divorce

A Collaborative Divorce is a unique process to accomplishing a legal divorce and is founded on three core principles:

  • a written pledge not to fight in court, and withdrawal of the hired professionals if either party chooses to fight in court,
  • open communication between the parties with an honest and good faith exchange of information,
  • negotiations leading to a mutually acceptable written agreement  that takes into account the needs and priorities of all family members.

This collaborative process frequently works involving varying degrees of a team of professionals including attorneys, behavioral health clinicians (who function in an assessment and advisory capacity) and financial specialists to maximize positive outcomes for the family.


A collaborative process may also be useful in post-divorce legal disputes as an Alternative Dispute Resolution Process (ADR).  This alternative could offer a more efficient way of resolving disputes rather than returning to the Court.
