How does Collaborative Practice focus on a family’s future?

Divorce and termination of domestic partnerships are an ending and a beginning all wrapped up into one process. Collaborative Practice helps parties anticipate their family’s best interests in moving forward, and include their needs in the discussions. When children affected, Collaborative Practice makes their future the number one priority. As a more respectful, dignified process, Collaborative Practice helps the family make a smoother transition to the next stage of their lives, maintaining relationships and lessening trauma and stress. Individuals and their children often find they heal more quickly and with fewer lasting effects. The same benefits can also be achieved in employment, real estate, business, probate and other civil law disputes.
