HOW DOES THE COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE PROCESS WORK?

The collaborative divorce process promotes open communication and also recognizes the challenge inherent in the process. The parties schedule a series of joint meetings to achieve the following:
  • identify the priorities and needs of each spouse
  • gather and exchange information
  • develop and evaluate options and alternatives
  • construct a sustainable agreement
You and your collaborative professionals work together to address these goals and reach a resolution. Mutual respect allows this process to progress and provides a framework for any future relationships.
