Better, less expensive, faster divorce WHAT’S COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE?

Breaking up is hard to do, but it doesn’t have to be war! In fact, if you play your cards right, it can be a downright peaceful experience. What’s more, collaborative divorce is less stressful, faster and generally less expensive than “traditional divorce” or courtroom litigation.

Collaborative law is non-adversarial. Meaning, you don’t fight against your spouse to win an advantage. This doesn’t mean you’ll agree on everything. The foundation of the Collaborative approach is to help you and your spouse find solutions to your disputes — child custody, the amount of spousal support or who gets the family home, for example — without going to court.
