In Collaborative Divorce, a team of professionals works together toward a common goal: a mutually beneficial resolution to how a marriage will end.

A huge benefit of Collaborative Divorce is the fact that the process and the outcome are customized to meet the unique needs of the family – no one-size-fits-all court metrics or parameters!

In this process, the details and desires of the divorcing couple guide the conversations and negotiations. Their common goal – a non-adversarial process that leads to a peaceful parting of ways – serves as the guiding light throughout the divorce proceedings.

This is one of many benefits of Collaborative Divorce, including the following:

  • Parties remain cordial and respectful throughout the process, even through difficult moments.
  • They’re guided by a team of professionals who help the divorcing couple move toward a peaceful and acceptable outcome.
  • Couples who divorce collaboratively find that they are more likely to follow the parameters of their divorce agreement and less likely to return to court in the years following.
  • Many also co-parent more successfully because of the collegial tone they set during the divorce.
  • The Collaborative Divorce process achieves results according to their own timetable since there are no obstacles due to the court docket or a judge’s calendar.
