Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial dispute resolution process in which the parties work together, with the assistance of their attorneys and other neutral professionals, to resolve their disputes without going to court. The process does not put them against each other as adversaries. Instead, the parties, their lawyers, and other neutral professionals work together as a team.


Mediation is a useful tool in virtually all family law matters. In mediation, the parties work with a neutral mediator who acts as a communications facilitator and negotiator. Typically, the parties occupy separate rooms and the mediator negotiates individually with each party, attempting to achieve a mutually acceptable and beneficial resolution to the parties’ disputes.
