Courts and offices may be closed, but the CACP and its members remain ready and able to support and serve our clients and community. The membership roster includes contact information for our collaborative professionals, and the collaborative process continues to be an ideal alternative, especially while access to the courts is severely restricted.
Your Collaborative Dissolution involves four fundamental principles:
Both spouses and their attorneys commit that they will not take the dispute to court. This allows everyone to focus on problem solving and reaching agreements rather than litigation.
Each spouse’s personal, family, and financial goals and interests are highlighted and carefully considered as the spouses work toward a resolution on all issues.
In addition to collaboratively trained attorneys who provide legal guidance, spouses are also able to turn to family relations specialists and financial neutrals to address the family-related and financial issues.
There is complete, open and transparent communication between attorneys, other professionals, and spouses. The spouses commit to sharing all relevant information and documentation.
