Welcome to the Collaborative Practice Group Web Page

Collaborative Practice is a new option for divorcing couples for resolving disputes respectfully and equitably without going to court. The goal of collaborative practice is to help divorcing couples focus on their most important goals, especially children.

Because couples who choose the collaborative model agree not to go to court, they retain control of the process and outcome. Within the collaborative process, spouses learn a framework for effectively communicating their concerns and goals. The entire collaborative team works together, not against each other, towards finding mutually beneficial solutions for critical issues.  As a result, divorcing couples preserve their dignity, their privacy, and their ability to continue to effectively co-parent their children once the divorce is over.

In the collaborative process, each party retains collaborative counsel to advise and guide them as a member of the collaborative team.
