Collaborative Law is an alternative to the traditional divorce process. Traditional divorce, usually leads to litigation in which parents are fighting one another to divide assets as well as custody. Through the Collaborative process, parents work together to develop a plan for their families that is less of a battle and more about reaching a mutual agreement that benefits everyone.
With the help of a team of specialists, couples who go through the collaborative process yield better outcomes and find ways to work with one another instead of fighting. For children, they experience a less combative environment and less adverse outcomes.
As a child specialist, I am a member of the collaborative team. My role is to help you make better decisions that work for your child(ren). I meet with your child (ren) and gather information that will be helpful to bring back to the collaborative team to help you make meaningful decisions with your collaborative team.
I am not your child’s therapist and I am not gathering information that is to be used in litigation. I am a support for parents who want to make sure their child(ren)’s needs are met through and after the divorce process.
