Collaborative Divorce is a process in which a divorcing couple agrees not to litigate and, instead, to make all of the decisions concerning their divorce  outside of court.  In a series of joint meetings, the couple develops an agreed parenting plan and an agreed division of assets and debts.

Each spouse is represented by his/ her own attorney. Often, a neutral financial professional and mental health professional round out the Collaborative Team. While there may be more people involved, the couple’s legal funds are used more resourcefully because instead of discussions occurring through two attorneys, one financial professional assists both of them in their financial concerns and one mental health professional assists them with parenting and communication concerns.

A Collaborative Divorce avoids the volatile and risky process of litigation when those decisions are taken away from the individuals and made by a court.  Collaborative Divorce is completely confidential and ensures the couple’s privacy and finances are protected.


Mediation is a process in which a couple agrees to negotiate their disputes with the help of a neutral third party. Mediation is completely confidential and completely voluntary.  If one party does not agree with the alternatives or proposals created through the process of the mediation, no agreements are reached and the process ends.  When agreements are reached in Mediation, they become binding on the parties and the Court must enter orders that reflect the Mediated Settlement Agreement.
