Collaborative Divorce

Reach a fair agreement for your family with a Collaborative Divorce

The collaborative approach provides separating or divorcing couples with a team of professionals and experts to guide them through the collaboration process.

Unlike mediation, where a couple typically works with one neutral mediator, the collaborative method includes attorneys, divorce coaches, child specialists and a financial neutral party. In collaborative divorce cases, Empowered Divorce acts as the financial neutral party.

Our goal during the collaborative process is to help the divorcing couple address the needs of each party, including the children, and to help them make decisions that are best for the entire family. The collaborative divorce process is always voluntary and confidential.

Empowered Divorce can provide contact information for skilled attorneys, coaches and child specialists who are trained and experienced in the process of collaborative divorce.
