The collaborative process and philosophy is totally revolutionary.  This approach resulted in helping to maintain the relationship between myself and my ex husband. Our children observed our separation to be over quickly and peacefully, which has been the best outcome for the well-being of our children.

 I found that the collaborative process enhanced cooperation, open communication, and creative problem-solving to achieve solutions that work well for everyone involved. 

- John

From the onset, the atmosphere was different – instead of an adversarial courtroom, we found ourselves in a supportive and understanding environment. The collaborative resolution process allowed us to maintain control over the decisions that would shape our futures, rather than relinquishing that power to a judge.
