About Collaborative Practice: Why Collaborative?
The end of a marriage can be tragic enough. Divorce proceedings frequently only add to the pain and monetary hardship. Conventional attorneys PROSPER in combative divorce situations and often pit divorcees against each other, endeavoring to maximize profit.
All too often, the only true winner in traditional divorce proceedings is the attorney; leaving both parties of the divorce financially destitute.
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.
A growing number of parting spouses, along with professionals such as lawyers, financial specialists, human rights advocates, and mental health professionals have begun to recognize this phenomenon and have combined their efforts in search of a more constructive alternative.
These professionals have developed the Collaborative Practice model.
Collaborative VS Conventional Divorce
|Conflict of interest||Pledged to serve YOUR interests|
|Attorney makes money from your expenses||Attorney impartial and paid flat rate|
|Divisive, capitalist approach||Family/Asset oriented approach|
|Surrender much of decision making power||Decision making power remains in YOUR hands|
|Judge has final say||YOU have final say|
