A marriage has ended, but why should the ensuing divorce be so devastating? There is an alternative to the standard adversarial, litigated divorce.  That alternative is the Collaborative Divorce Model. Collaborative Practice is a solutions-oriented approach that seeks to preserve the long-term interests of families. It differs from conventional divorce in that couples pledge in writing to work toward an agreement without going to court.
