Collaborative Practice San Francisco

Once you have chosen Collaborative Practice, you will need to select Collaborative Attorneys to assist you throughout the process.  You may also choose to start the process with a Collaborative Divorce Coach or Neutral Financial Professional.  Wherever you begin the process, you will have a chance to meet privately and together with your professionals. Collaborative Practice is unique in that it calls for both of you, your attorneys, and often other professionals, to come together for face-to-face discussions and negotiations outside the courtroom.  In an atmosphere of openness and honesty, all assets are disclosed, needs are communicated, and solutions are explored.  When there are children, their interests are given foremost priority.

The end result of Collaborative Practice is a divorce agreement that has been achieved through mutual problem solving.  Nothing is finalized until you and your spouse agree that it is an acceptable solution.  You, along with your attorneys and other chosen Collaborative professionals, take control of shaping the final agreement rather than having a settlement imposed on you by the court.
