You can rely on our firm to provide sound and effective guidance tailored to your needs.
What is a collaborative divorce?
Like divorce mediation, collaborative divorce is a type of alternative dispute resolution method in which divorcing spouses work together in an honest, transparent and cooperative manner to negotiate an agreement that considers the goals and needs of both parties. The collaborative team consists of two collaboratively trained attorneys (one for each spouse), as well as a mental health professional (such as a neutral coach or a co-parenting counselor) and a financial neutral. Each professional must have training in the collaborative process. At the conclusion of a successful collaborative divorce process, you will have a detailed agreement outlining the terms of your divorce to submit to the Court for approval. Our family law attorney, who is highly trained in this problem-solving process, can examine your situation and advise you on whether or not collaborative divorce may be an effective option for you based upon your unique situation.
What are the advantages of a collaborative divorce versus going to court?
Collaborative divorce is designed to be non-adversarial and respectful. The focus is on reaching a satisfactory agreement on the issues that best serves both spouses and the children. The attorneys and professionals involved are trained in techniques to resolve disputes, which reduces conflict and the emotionally fraught aspects of divorce, for the benefit of both spouses and their children. Additionally, the divorcing spouses make the decisions on property division, parenting plans and other issues that affect their own futures. When attorney Ferrante speaks with you and better understands your circumstances, she will put her experience to work for you.
