3 Benefits of Collaborative Practice

1. Everyone’s Voice is Heard

The collaborative team ensures that everyone’s voice is heard by both the professionals and the other parties involved.

2. 100% Family Focused

The focus of every individual during the collaborative process is on the family. There is no winner v. loser mentality. The focus is 100% on the goals and interests of each party and the best interests of the child. Family is still family despite divorce. In collaborative practice, the focus is on adapting the family to a slightly different structure.

3. Multiple Options for Resolutions

The collaborative team will work to come up with several options of creative solutions for the parties to consider, discuss, modify and integrate into their lives.
