Protect Your Children’s Best Interests Using Collaborative Parenting Agreements

This can create overwhelming anxiety for many parents, placing additional strain on an already emotional and draining situation.

Collaborative law provides a way for parents to work together to reach a parenting agreement that is in the best interests of the children. By negotiating and compromising together to reach this agreement, parents start to lay a framework of cooperation and respect as separated parents who must still work together to raise their children.

Our ADR lawyers will walk you through this process and explain all options. We also make sure, however, that your parental rights and your relationship with your children are fully protected in the final agreement.

The lack of contention and stress also makes the divorce as easy as possible for the children, helping them transition in a healthy manner.

The Benefits Of Collaborative Law

Collaborative law lawyers are experienced in keeping all negotiations and discussions pointed to an efficient and agreed-upon resolution — and one that is in the best interests of the children.

This usually results in the spouses reaching an agreement as efficiently and reasonably as possible while also preserving the respect that remains between them. This is invaluable as they must now transition into working together post-marriage to make decisions for their children.
