"Because it ends a marriage, divorce can be a painful experience. But there is no denying that divorce is also a new beginning. Recognizing this, many individuals have sought a more constructive way of divorcing. For them, Collaborative Practice (Collaborative Law and Collaborative Divorce) has been the answer. It promotes respect, places the needs of children first and keeps control of the process with the spouses." By International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) Link to Website

"Separating or divorcing is never easy. But when couples and their advocates take a less adversarial approach, the entire family benefits. Collaborative practice (often called collaborative law) helps families resolve divorce issues with dignity and respect. In the collaborative process, husbands, wives, their attorneys, and any other collaborative professionals working with the family, agree to resolve all issues of their case without contentious court proceedings. They plan together to craft an agreement. They make thoughtful decisions that can actually work for the entire family." By Collaborative Law Institute of Minnesota Link to Website
