Choose Peaceful Divorce through Collaborative Practice
Collaborative Practice (CP) is fundamentally a new model for resolving legal disputes. Instead of racing to court, Collaborative participants agree to work together outside of court. Instead of working to uncover evidence, Collaborative participants agree to provide each other with all relevant information. Instead of focusing on what is wrong with the other person, Collaborative professionals and participants work as a team to resolve the issues.
The CPI is dedicated to changing the adversarial approach to divorce and other legal matters. Divorce does not need to result in anger and hurt, resentment and on-going animosity. With CP, family members develop skills and participate in a process with the support of experts to emerge from their dispute feeling they have been heard and knowing that their individual needs and interests have been considered in the outcome. Divorce is rarely without pain. However, divorce can hurt less and be an opportunity to build a foundation for a successful future.
