Couple at Home

Is The Collaborative Process Right For You?

The Collaborative Process is the best option if you and your partner want to learn tools to decrease conflict and stress as you navigate your separation.

The Collaborative Process works for couples with high levels of conflict. You do not have to be amicable or already in agreement about your issues. As experienced professionals, we know, separating couples often do not even want to be in the same room. 

With the support of a Collaborative Team, CDV professionals help you resolve your issues. Instead of having lawyers negotiating without you and judges making decisions for you, we help you reach an agreement on the issues that matter the most to you.

The Collaborative Process works for:
 

  • Same-sex and opposite-sex couples

  • Legally married and unmarried (common-law) couples

  • Couples with and without children

  • All ethnicities

  • All religions

Are the following statements true? If they are, the Collaborative Process is the best option for you:

  • There is so much conflict; it's impossible to imagine how you could ever reach an agreement with your spouse.

  • You are worried about your and your children's emotional and financial well-being. 

  • You don't understand how family law works in general or how it applies to your situation. 

  • You're discouraged from trying to resolve your disputes in ways that haven't worked (such as the court process or a mediation process).

  • You want creative solutions that will work for your family. 

  • With the help of a skilled team, you would prefer to resolve your problems rather than having a judge make decisions that will impact you for the rest of your lives.
