  • Roseville Collaborative Law Lawyer

    Divorce can be a very difficult and stressful experience for you and your children.  There are times you need the support of a team of professionals who can help you manage all aspects of the divorce (i.e. emotional, financial, and concerns of your children). One option to consider is a Collaborative Divorce process.   A Collaborative Divorce allows you and your spouse to each retain an attorney to represent you in a settlement-oriented process where both parties and their attorney’s agree to stay out of court.  As needed, the parties and their attorneys consult with other professionals such as child specialists, financial specialists and divorce coaches to help fully understand their options and to help them move forward with the least amount of stress and turmoil.

    Key features of the Collaborative Divorce process include:

    • Both parties and their attorneys work together to make decisions and to resolve problems without going to court.
    • A complete and open exchange of information is essential.
    • Can be a cost-effective alternative to litigation where the parties appear in court to resolve conflicts.
    • Encourages respectful interaction and cooperation that is focused on moving forward with the least amount of conflict.
    • Offers solutions that take into account both parties’ interests and their children’s needs.
    • Confidentiality of all discussions.
