Collaborative Practice

Collaborative Practice is a new model of family law that offers families an alternative to litigation. In this process of divorce the couple agrees to be a part of a Collaborative Team which consists of two attorneys, at least one Collaborative Coach, a Financial Neutral and sometimes a Child Specialist. The Collaborative Team works together with the family through the process of separation and divorce in a way that maintains respect, integrity and attention to the needs of all members of the family. The Collaborative Process is very effective at fostering creative solutions to parenting issues and property and financial issues.

A large part of my practice is working with couples struggling to communicate. I have helped couples in various stages of pre-separation, separation and divorce. I have seen the damage that can be done to children when conflict cannot be managed and am committed to the movement of helping families remain peaceful through the challenges they face during separation and divorce.

As a Collaborative Divorce Coach, I help couples navigate the emotional aspects of the divorce while also assisting couples to create Parenting Plans that meet the needs of both parents as well as the children. I understand that each family is unique and strives for creativity when it comes to Parenting Plans and separation of assets.
