Collaborative Divorce is a non-traditional way to divorce. Although each of you hires a lawyer, the lawyers are trained to deal with the emotional as well as the financial and legal issues. The four of you form a team with the shared goal of creating fair and
equitable divorce agreements. Other team members, your financial analyst and divorce coach, tend to your financial, emotional, and parenting lives. Your attorneys facilitate negotiations between you and your spouse, document your final agreements, and file them in Court.
All participants commit to creating
agreements that best meet your whole
family’s needs. You and your spouse
are supported to cooperate and act in
accordance with your values. The peace you create benefits your immediate family, your extended families, and your communities. Everyone acts honestly, respectfully, and transparently. You and your spouse make your own decisions and end up satisfied with your agreements and with one other.

Divorce challenges you financially,
emotionally, and legally. How do you survive with less money? How do you tolerate feeling anger, sadness, and fear? How do you envision your new beginning when your ending just happened?
Traditionally, spouses each hired a lawyer, who advocated zealously, no matter the financial and emotional cost. This way of divorcing led to fighting and decisions based on what judges decide or fear of what those decisions might be. People felt
abused, by each other and by a system they never really understood.
Fortunately, there are other ways to divorce. Your range of options includes forms of mediation or Collaborative Divorce. You use lawyers to guide you through the legal system, and other professionals to work with you on your emotions and finances. Mental health and financial experts, for example,
help you create your own solutions rather than fight for decisions made by strangers.
