About Collaborative Divorce

As a Collaborative Process Facilitator, I assist divorcing couples, their attorneys and the collaborative team in reaching resolution as efficiently, effectively and respectfully as possible. Collaborative divorce is a process option for divorcing couples in which both spouses retain attorneys, and the spouses and their attorneys agree to keep contested matters out of court and commit to a transparent process using interest-based negotiation to arrive at a resolution. Collaborative practice represents a constructive alternative to a process that is frequently played out in courtrooms, or between adversarial legal teams. With its focus on solutions and the future, its grounding in interest-based negotiation, and its commitment to resolving differences using the collaborative method, collaborative divorce provides a humane and respectful environment for that transition to evolve. When children are involved, collaborative divorce provides the family with a path forward that minimizes the damage to the structure while laying the foundation for a healthy post-divorce future.

My Role in the Collaborative Process

As a collaborative process facilitator, I assist divorcing couples, their attorneys and the collaborative team in reaching resolution as efficiently, effectively and respectfully as possible. This typically involves facilitating the Joint Collaborative Meetings, working with divorcing spouses to identify and communicate their interests, assisting parents with minor children to develop a parenting plan that best meets the needs of the children and the family, and working with the collaborative professional team to enhance its effectiveness.
