Collaborative Practice Marin

Designed as an alternative to conventional divorce, Collaborative Practice offers many distinct advantages: 

  • You keep control of the process yourselves, without going to court.
  • As in mediation, the proceedings are protected with full confidentiality.
  • Children's needs may be given priority. 
  • You and your partner commit to reaching agreement through a problem-solving approach.
  • An atmosphere of respect preserves self-esteem. 
  • Open communication allows both of you to express your needs for moving forward and gives you new tools for effective problem-solving in the future. 
  • There is full disclosure of facts and information.
  • Face-to-face meetings in the presence of specially-trained lawyers make negotiations direct and efficient and allow for mutually created resolutions. 
  • The Collaborative process helps both of you plan for your own future and that of your children and to begin new lives for all of you.

Why Collaborative Divorce?

“Divorce is never easy but the collaborative process made mine bearable.  I had more control and therefore less stress and anxiety because I had an active role.”
