Benefits of Collaborative Practice

 ·  The parties are in control of the process and create solutions that     meet their needs and the needs of their family.

 ·  The parties communicate directly with each other and work     together to resolve their issues. The parties are responsible for     creating their own solutions in a constructive setting and with a     focus on the future.

 ·  Collaborative Practice is time and cost effective. Litigating through     the court system can be both time consuming and expensive.     Resolving conflict through Collaborative Practice enables the parties     to create their own time frame and work efficiently according to     their own needs and interests.

 ·  Collaborative attorneys are committed to working together to help     create a productive and positive atmosphere. The attorneys agree     that they will not represent their respective clients in a court-based     action. This commitment removes the threat of litigation and     allows the parties to be creative, open and committed to     resolving their issues in a safe and secure environment.

 ·  Couples ending their relationship may find that their     communication does not end when their relationship does. If you     have children together, you have a lifetime of communicating with     each other. Working together through Collaborative Practice can     help you to make the transition in your relationship and effectively     communicate in the future.
