Couples who want to avoid court

The collaborative process is private; confidentiality is maintained with regard to all family information.

Parties remain in total control of the outcome — any resolution must  be agreeable to both parties.

Parties are encouraged to treat each other respectfully promoting more positive post-divorce relations and peaceful co-parenting.

Because there are no court appearances and little paperwork, the total cost of the collaborative process is generally far less than the cost of going to court to litigate the divorce. The actual cost depends on how long it takes to reach an agreement that is acceptable to both parties.
