Collaborative Law | Raleigh

The title “Collaborative Divorce” is descriptive of its process. It is a divorce model based on respect and agreement to resolve the unique issues relating to the dissolution of your marriage. An alternative to court, collaborative divorce is private and efficient, more flexible and less destructive than traditional divorce.

Collaborative Law is a limited scope representation model. Collaborative Law agreements require divorcing spouses to find resolution without the necessity of court intervention. The process involves negotiation and a desire to creatively solve the unique problems that cause a marriage to end.
