Ending a long-term relationship is a deeply personal and sensitive matter that most people prefer to go through in private. Collaborative Practice provides a private place, outside the court system, in which you can have respectful conversations with your spouse or partner when a relationship ends, or with a family member in matters related to estate issues or a family business, to reach solutions that consider the needs of everyone affected. Court proceedings can be emotionally destructive and financially expensive with parties left powerless in determining a final solution.

If you are looking for something different and find any of the following valuable for you, Collaborative Practice may be what you are looking for:

  • I want to preserve a relationship with the other party.
  • I want to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of my family.
  • I wish to minimize the emotional and financial costs for my family and me.
  • I choose to avoid having the court make decisions.
  • I choose to work together with my spouse/partner/family member to find creative solutions that will meet each of our needs.
  • I believe that it is important to move past current frustrations, pain and anger and plan for the future.
  • I choose to be part of the planning process in reaching a resolution; not one imposed upon me by the court.

If any of these are important for you, then please contact one of our Collaborative Team of professionals with Collaborative Law Professionals of Southeastern Pennsylvania about your situation. We will help you decide if Collaborative Practice is the right choice for you and your family.
