Collaborative Practice Series – Part 2: A Better Way to Divorce


Collaborative Divorce is a better process in which a divorcing couple, together with trained professionals, work as a team to resolve disputes respectfully without going to court.

The Principles of Collaborative Practice:

Couples going through divorce can experience confusion, anger, and loss. Under such circumstances, you may find it difficult to see an end to the divorce, much less a hopeful future forward. Collaborative Practice is a better approach to divorce based on three principles:

  1. A pledge to resolve issues without going to court.
  2. An open and complete exchange to information.
  3. A resolution that considers the highest priorities of the family.

Mutual respect is fundamental to the collaborative approach. When you give and receive respect, discussions are more productive allowing you to more readily reach agreements.

A Focus on the Future:

Divorce ends a marriage but not ties or relationships. Especially when children are involved, lifelong responsibilities remain. By encouraging respectful interactions and cooperation, Collaborative Practice helps parents and children maintain family bonds while embracing new lives.

Divorce will always remain a significant life event. Collaborative Practice guides you and your family though a healthy transition.
