When facing divorce, families have options of how to take on the process. The path a family chooses can dramatically impact the outcome of the divorce. In this webinar, we’ll talk about a lesser-known option called Collaborative Divorce. This court-free, cooperative approach strives to respond to the needs of every family member. Collaborative Divorce is cost-efficient, respectful, supportive, and child-friendly.
