Divorce Brochure


The collaborative divorce process is not appropriate for all cases and certainly is not a perfect or foolproof process. However, for families having legal disputes who have both real conflict and a desire to settle their differences without going to court, the collaborative divorce process may offer hope. In many cases, the collaborative process will be better able than the litigation process to increase the chances that the dispute will be resolved in an acceptable way without the family having to endure the difficulties encountered when family members litigate against each other in open court.
