Protecting Your MaritalĀ  Assets


Collaborative Divorce  

Collaborative Divorce is a new way for a divorcing couple to work as a team with trained professionals to resolve disputes respectfully, without going to court.

In a Collaborative Divorce, each spouse has the support, protection and guidance of his or her own lawyer. Often, other professionals such as child specialists, financial specialists, and divorce coaches will be brought in to advise on matters in their areas of expertise. At Divorce Settlement Solutions, we provide you with a group of trained specialists.

Collaborative Divorce is not a dispute resolution option in the same sense as mediation or arbitration. Rather, collaborative divorce is a set of voluntary ground rules entered into by the professionals hired by you and your spouse. While the details vary from collaborative practice to collaborative practice, the central idea is that the following inviolable core elements are set out in a contractual commitment among all the parties:

  • negotiate a mutually acceptable settlement without using court to decide any issues for the clients
  • withdrawal of the professionals if either client goes to court
  • engage in open communication and information sharing, and
  • create shared solutions that consider the highest priorities of both clients.


Although some people still choose to fight their differences out in court, knowledge of these options give you other opportunities to try to settle your case without the financial and emotional burdens that generally come with litigation. Couples can now reach lasting solutions that benefit both parties and their children.
