Divorce

Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Divorce are nonadversarial divorce processes that promote peaceful, respectful and private resolutions to family matters.

Divorce Mediation is a process that fosters discussion between the divorcing couple with the help of a neutral third party, the mediator. A mediator acts as a facilitator, helping people in conflict explore options and find a settlement that works for everyone involved, but does not make decisions for you. In mediation, the emphasis is on maintaining communication between you and your spouse.
Collaborative Divorce is a non-adversarial process in which you and your spouse each hire a specially-trained collaborative divorce attorney to represent you and negotiate an agreement. Both parties make a pledge that the attorneys will withdraw if an agreement cannot be reached. Once the collaborative divorce starts, the lawyers are legally disqualified from representing you and your spouse in a contested legal proceeding.
Both processes enable spouses to develop a tailored divorce agreement that will be submitted to the family court at the end of the process, but will keep contact with the court as brief as possible.
