Divorce is painful...
         ...but it does not have to be destructive.
Many couples unwittingly choose to litigate (go to court) because they are not given a better alternative; collaborative divorce. Divorce courts are courts of equity. In other words, in a litigated divorce, the judge has complete discretion to determine what, in his/her mind, is fair for your family. 

In a collaborative divorce, the couple and their attorneys are preparing for resolution from day one in a negotiation centered process.The collaborative process recognizes that the couple, and not a judge, is best suited to make decisions that are in the best interest of their family.

Collaborative Divorce is different from a litigated divorce. 
The benefits of a Collaborative Divorce include:

  Privacy – by staying out of a public courtroom, your collaborative divorce remains confidential. 

  Control – you, and not a judge, decide what is fair.

  Financial Resources – from the first day your money is spent working towards settlement, not trial 

  Common Sense – you and your spouse reach realistic and workable solutions allowing you both to move
   forward with your lives.

  Children – with a greater emphasis on the long-term emotional and financial well-being of both you and
   your spouse, your children are less likely to feel ‘caught between’ two loving parents.
