Commit to resolve your complicated matter out of court
In Collaborative Divorce, each party has their own independent legal representation and the parties agree to use neutral experts such as financial planners, accountants, parenting therapists, and co-parenting coaches. Above all, they commit to not go to court. Matthew Moore is a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals. According to the academy:
Collaborative Practice is a voluntary dispute resolution process in which parties settle without resort to litigation.
Employ a team of neutral experts.
Collaborative Practice provides you and your spouse or partner with the support and guidance of your own lawyers without going to court. Additionally, Collaborative Practice allows you the benefit of coaches, child and financial specialists all working together with you on your team.
In Collaborative Practice, core elements form your commitments to this process, which are to:
- Negotiate a mutually acceptable resolution without having courts decide issues.
- Maintain open communication and information sharing.
- Create shared solutions acknowledging the highest priorities of all.
