Lisa Zonder and Alice Arnold’s new article “Collaborative Divorce: a Win-Win Approach” was just published by the Ventura County Bar Association.
Collaborative divorce is client-centered and non-adversarial. It uses an interdisciplinary team of professionals to help the the couple resolve their issues.
The couple signs a formal pledge not to go to court unless the collaborative process breaks down. Clients have a right to stay out of court and transition through divorce with a focus on their family’s priorities, guided by civility and respect.
