Collaborative Practice is an alternative dispute resolution process which provides you with specially trained team of Collaborative lawyers, mental health and financial professionals to educate, support and guide you in reaching balanced, respectful and lasting agreements.
Collaborative Practice offers you a safe and dignified environment to reduce the conflict and minimize its impact on you, your children, your family and your life. It is a process in which the parties and professional team agree to not go to court to resolve the dispute. Negotiations are done roundtable with the support of the professional team. This is a good alternative to couples that do not want to litigate but perhaps are not amicable or resolved enough to mediate.
Melissa does offer a free 30-minute consultation on “process options” available for resolving various disputes.
