How to Get Started

If you think that the Collaborative Family Law Process may be right for you and your spouse, begin by taking these steps:

While there are no two cases or two collaborative lawyers alike, the emphasis is on finding a way in which lawyers can work with spouses to reach agreements cooperatively and efficiently. The majority of work is conducted in four-way conferences where you and your spouse play the lead roles in reaching your agreement.

Finally there is an approach that allows the parties involved to have an active role in how “their” divorce is resolved – it is called Collaborative Law.
