Collaborative Practice is designed to eliminate the inefficiencies of the traditional divorce process by utilizing professionals who are necessary for your particular case. Not every divorce requires professionals with the same types of skills. Cases with complex financial issues benefit from using a divorce financial neutral rather than relying on attorneys who may not have a sophisticated financial background. Similarly, for those with difficult issues related to children, the parties can decide to bring in a mental health professional specializing in divorce rather than relying on attorneys who do not have the same level of training.
This allows the attorneys to focus solely on legal issues rather than being distracted by issues that are more efficiently served by other trained professionals. The parties, in consultation with their attorneys, can customize the professionals who will assist the parties, thereby reducing the overall costs for the divorce.
