The Collaborative Divorce process is an opportunity. You and your spouse will work with collaboratively trained attorneys who pledge, with you, to ensure that all issues in your divorce are handled outside of court. You have greater control of the outcome and process and access to a team of professionals with expertise in the legal, financial and emotional issues specific to divorce, and your own attorney to support and advise you along the way. This process provides more certainty of achieving a settlement that works for you and your family. Lines of communication are always open. It is civil, respectful and humane.
In the Mediation Process, you work with a neutral and impartial professional who helps identify your specific issues, choices and options. In mediation, you control the process and have access to the other professional resources you need to make thoughtful decisions. Even if there is significant tension between the two of you, Mediation will help you and your spouse communicate more effectively.
