The collaborative process is typically appropriate in non-adversarial divorce, non-marital relationship break-ups, child custody and other parenting concerns, pre-nuptial agreements, domestic partnership agreements, domestic partnership dissolutions, property disputes, financial support, probate matters, neighbor conflict and business disputes.
Collaborative professionals often work in teams involving attorneys, collaborative coaches, a financial professional, and, if children are involved, a child specialist. The team communicates regularly and works together in an interdisciplinary environment, using all team resources to identify issues proactively and help the parties generate mutually acceptable settlements.
