Choose Your Collaborative Professionals

The interdisciplinary model of Collaborative Divorce anticipates the interactive role and participation of the parties with their independent Attorneys, as well as either one neutral or two Divorce Coaches, a Financial Neutral Consultant, and a Child Specialist (if recommended). The goal of the interdisciplinary team is to assist the divorcing spouses through the divorce processes as efficiently and economically as possible while at the same time keeping in mind the needs of the individual spouses and their children.

Choose Your Collaborative Divorce Coach

The Divorce Coach helps each party cope with their feelings and associated struggles emanating from the separation and dissolution of the marital relationship. Coaches also work to help the couple find ways to communicate with each other in a positive manner in order to work through the differences they have. In short, the coaches support the parties going through the Collaborative process. They serve to keep people centered and focused on the process and enabled to protect their interests in the process even though the general times may be stressful, taxing and unhappy. A neutral coach also serves as a case coordinator, assuring the process moves forward, and attends all meetings.
