Comments: Collaborative Practice provides the framework, the tools, and the commitment necessary for the positive reconfiguration of families in transition. The adversarial litigation process tends to create (or escalate) negative emotional and financial consequences not in the best interests of clients, families, and children. If clients are willing to engage in the work required in a forum that acknowledges the legal, financial, and emotional aspects - Collaborative Practice is a healthy alternative for the resolution of disputes.
