Collaborative Divorce is an alternative model of marriage dissolution built around a collaborative, solutions-focused process.
Over the course of a number of face to face meetings, the spouses and their attorneys will agree to work together, provide information, and develop a durable divorce settlement, without litigation.
Collaborative Divorce includes professionals from areas like property valuation, finance, and child welfare, as well as the Collaborative Attorneys representing each party.
In a traditional divorce, these roles are often filled by attorneys or expert witnesses.
In a collaborative setting, these are professionals in their field, meaning that while the team may be large, collaborative divorce is often a much less expensive way to develop a divorce settlement.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help clients who want to avoid the adversarial and litigious traditional approach to divorce.
We work closely with you, and then represent your interests in the face to face negotiations with your spouse and their attorney.
