What Is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative Law is a revolutionary and innovative approach to divorce and family law matters, from the very simple to the most complex. The collaborative approach is a process that promotes open communication between disputing parties, with the assistance of collaborative lawyers. Collaborative Law is a solution-oriented system to resolve disputed family law matters under negotiated terms and conditions that are best for you and your family.

Why Choose Collaborative Law?

Collaborative Law is empowering — the parties work together for the best possible resolution, without having an outcome they don’t really want imposed on them by a judge.

Collaborative Law is faster and more efficient than litigation. Parties work together to gather information and consider solutions that the court often can’t or won’t impose.

Collaborative Law involves less animosity — which can be stressful, exhausting and depressing. The situation that brought people to the decision to divorce is stressful enough.

Collaborative Law begins to move the parties toward the kind of communication that they will need to practice to be effective co-parents. When there are children involved, positive communication between the parties is critical after the divorce.

Collaborative Law supports full disclosure — the parties aren’t left wondering what the other person was hiding. Collaborative Law begins to rebuild trust that may have been lost in the demise of the relationship.

Collaborative Law is a win-win approach to resolving disputed issues.
