The adversarial system is a costly, antiquated and ineffective way of addressing family conflict. Court battles focus on dismantling the past and build resentment by declaring one spouse the winner and the other spouse the loser. The collaborative family law process empowers divorcing couples to resolve their conflicts outside of the court process with the help of their collaborative attorneys.
Each client is represented by his or her own attorney who is fully committed to resolving conflict through a series of face-to-face meetings. The clients, their attorneys, as well as mental health professionals and financial experts, as needed, work together to explore the needs, interests and priorities of both spouses while managing the inherent stress of the divorce process. The process operates on the clients' timetable rather than the court's docket to promote a lasting, balanced resolution.
