3 Benefits of Collaborative Practice

1. Children are a Priority

If children are involved in a separation and divorce, they are often the main focus of both parties, the professionals, and the legislation. Collaborative practice allows for legal decisions to be made by both parties together in the best interests of the children.

2. Removes Competition Between Spouses and Professionals

The collaborative practice removes competition between spouses and professionals by identifying common goals and interests in the first meeting.

3. Removes Assumptions Between Spouses and Professionals

The collaborative practice removes assumptions between spouses and professionals in identifying common goals and interests in the first meeting.
