Is the Collaborative Divorce process right for you and if so. who do you need on your team?  We can discuss what you can expect from the professionals you will work with in your divorce.

Who will be at this meeting?  Both spouses/partners and a Collaborative Navigator, a neutral professional who will learn more about your situation and help you design the process to be the best fit for you.

Goals for this meeting:

  • Promote bringing your “better selves” to your divorce process.
