The Connecticut Collaborative Divorce Group is a group of family lawyers, mental health professionals, and certified divorce planners organized to promote the practice of Collaborative Divorce in Fairfield County, Connecticut.
Collaborative Divorce is a divorce process in which the parties and their attorneys agree to resolve all issues in an atmosphere of cooperation, honesty and integrity. Collaborative Divorce insures a full and open exchange of information. The goal is to minimize the negative emotional and economic consequences of divorce and work towards a divorce in the best interests of the family.
Collaborative Divorce attorneys are committed to work diligently on behalf of their clients to find creative, fair and efficient ways to reach an equitable settlement of all divorce matters. They believe that more effort should be exerted toward settlement as is traditionally spent in preparing and conducting divorce litigation.
