Welcome to Collaborative Practice San Francisco

This remarkably powerful and civilized approach to divorce is known as Collaborative Practice (including Collaborative Law and interdisciplinary Collaborative Divorce). Collaborative Practice is a relatively new process to help families through the divorce transition with each spouse having control and input into the resulting agreement with the support of trained professionals in a structured setting. In Collaborative Practice, each spouse has a Collaborative Practice-trained attorney and often other professionals such as mental health and financial experts who all work together as a team to facilitate the couple reaching agreement.
By choosing Collaborative Practice, instead of a potentially more costly, contentious and less private court-based legal approach, you and your spouse can keep control over your divorce process and its outcomes, with the help of specially trained professional advisors who will creatively guide you toward solutions tailored specifically to your family's unique situation. The needs of your children and each individual spouse are kept paramount, enhancing the prospect for healthy outcomes for all family members. This keeps the divorce transition constructive and respectful.
Couples who get a Collaborative Practice divorce often say they spent less than they might have in the more traditional adversarial framework and they gained communication skills to resolve differences with minimal conflict in the future.
