The process of divorce is can be a painful and difficult time for a couple who has reached this life-changing decision. The collaborative divorce process offers the couple a cooperative, respectful, honest and transparent way to minimize what can be an adversarial process and, most importantly maximize and even strengthen the well-being of the family and their co-parenting relationship.
