Collaborative Law in Family Law Cases

Collaborative Practice provides families with effective, respectful ways to resolve conflicts. Collaborative Law cases can include divorces, legal separations or non-marital couple separations, custody issues, parentage actions, child support issues and other issues which directly impact families and family structures.

Attorney, client and allied professionals work as a team, meeting with you in a series of “four-way” or “five-way” meetings to address the needs of both you and your and your children. Everyone signs a contract to promise that they will not go to court or threaten court while they are working together. Information is shared voluntarily and everyone commits to work together in good faith to resolve the issues. The entire process is confidential, and controlled by the you, not the court system. The professionals are dedicated to helping you arrive at the solutions that meet your needs.
