Collaborative Practice San Francisco

The Collaborative Process and LGBT Families

Collaborative Practice is particularly helpful for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) families-- with or without children-- going through dissolution because:

  • the process can be structured to serve your family's real needs, giving you control over where to spend your resources and energy
  • the Collaborative Practice process can help you create solutions that work for your family
  • Collaborative Practice is not a “one size fits all” process; it can be tailored to each couple’s expectations and needs rather than relying on an area of the law that is confusing and unsettled with regard to LGBT issues
  • in a Collaborative Practice process, you can take into consideration tax and other consequences that are unique to LGBT families
