What is collaborative practice? Collaborative practice is a way of resolving your divorce and separation-related issues without going to court. It's a very cost-effective and efficient process. Both parties have their own lawyers who advocate for you throughout the process, and give you advice, and make sure that a legally binding agreement is reached in the end.
In addition to that, you'll work with a financial specialist, who will help accumulate all of the data that you need to exchange to ensure that there's a proper financial resolution of spousal support equalization. We like to use a financial specialist because it helps minimize your legal fees, and in addition to that, you enjoy the benefits of an expert on financial issues.
In addition, you'll work with a family coach who will help to work out a parenting plan for you and your family and your children. Again, we like working with a family coach because it minimizes the involvement of the lawyers and keeps your costs to a minimum. It also gives you the opportunity to work with an expert on helping children through separation and divorce.
We're great believers in the collaborative practice process. It's been around for over 25 years. It's been used throughout the world. It's not very well-known, but it's a very well-established and well-received process. I recommend it in most cases.
