What is Collaborative Practice?

Advantages of Collaborative Divorce:

  • You and your spouse will control all of your decisions.
  • No one else, a lawyer, custody evaluator or judge, will tell you what to do.
  • You will conserve your emotional and financial resources.
  • You will use your time and energy more effectively.
  • You have the potential to have a better co-parenting relationship in the future.
  • You will have a Professional Team with unique professional knowledge and skills.  Because your divorce has legal, emotional, financial and parenting problems to solve, your Professional Team is a resource in each of these areas.

For example:

1.  Your Child Specialist is a licensed mental health professional with specialized training to help children understand and deal with divorce.

Your Child Specialist will:
  • Provide a safe place for your children to be heard.
  • Listen to your children and voice their needs and concerns.
  • Help you understand what is happening to your children.
  • Provide you with the information you need to make important parenting decisions.
Your Child Specialist will talk with you and your children about the divorce.  Your Child Specialist will meet with you, the other parent and your Divorce Coaches to share important information you need to create your Parenting Plan.
