Collaborative Family Law

If you and your spouse are considering or have chosen to divorce or separate, you may be overwhelmed by all of the unknowns. What divorce option to choose? What does the process look like? What will your financial future look like? What will happen to the children? You may also be experiencing emotional pain of uncoupling from your partner.  


Collaborative family law is the option where you and your spouse choose the resolution amicably with the assistance of collaborative professionals that provide guidance, emotional support, resources and expertise. In this process, parties work with a professional team including attorneys, financial specialists, divorce coaches and child specialists. Other team members may be added to tailor the process to you as a couple.

In this process, you are able to work together rather than as an adversary with your spouse which often leads to a more positive resolution that is tailored to your unique family situation. All of this work is done outside of a court and without any third party making any decision for you. 

If you have children, a positive resolution of your divorce provides a healthy foundation for an effective co-parenting relationship. It also provides your children a voice and the emotional support they desperately need during this difficult time.

If you would like to learn more about all of the options available to you, please contact my office. I am happy to discuss it with you and provide resources for you and your spouse to review and discuss. More detailed information is available under the services tab and in my blog.
