The Collaborative Practice is a non-adversarial approach.  Collaboratively trained lawyers pledge in writing not to go to court and work with an interdisciplinary team consisting of a mental health professional and a financial consultant, who are all certified in collaborative practice. Collaborative divorce uses a team approach to help the parties find solutions and constructive alternatives together.  The parties replace grievances with a settlement built on a foundation of understanding and mutual respect.
