Collaborative Divorce in New York and Connecticut

Collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial and private practice that focuses on achieving a fair and optimal divorce settlement for both parties. Unlike traditional litigation, the parties work together with the help of their own New York and Connecticut divorce lawyers to resolve the various issues that accompany divorces, such as property distribution, support, custody, and visitation. The parties may also enlist the help of neutral experts, such as financial specialists, divorce coaches, and child specialists, whose role is to explore complex issues more deeply with the parties (rather than to advocate for one party over another).

Collaborative divorce takes place in an informal and private setting, allowing the parties to candidly confront their issues without the burden of formal court procedure or the public disclosure of private family matters. Attorneys are present to advise each party, but the parties themselves steer the conversation. Unlike an adversarial court proceeding, in which each attorney tries to outdo the other to secure a favorable decision from a judge, attorneys in a Collaborative divorce facilitate the parties’ conversation and help them identify and focus upon the issues most important to them.
