    Goal of Collaborative Divorce

    The goal of the collaborative divorce is to assist the divorcing couple in achieving a successful resolution of various issues related to their marriage and family in such a way as to minimize the negative econo-
    mic, social and emotional consequences that families often experience in the traditional adversarial divorce process. As the Client, you are
    a member of the Team.

    In order to achieve this goal, professionals from several independent disciplines work together as a team to integrate the legal, emotional and financial aspects of a divorce. In addition to you and your family, your divorce coach may work with your attorneys, the financial specialist and the child specialist.

    • Resolve conflict effectively

    • Develop and support effective co-parenting skills

           communication and to reduce misunderstandings

    • Keep the collaborative divorce process moving toward resolution

    • Refer the client to an appropriate professional if therapy and

    • Provide your child/children with an opportunity to voice concerns
           regarding the divorce.
