Collaborative Law allows individuals to avoid an adversarial, costly, and contentious divorce through litigation in the court system. This practice is client-centered and client-controlled. We begin with an assessment of the individual needs of each client. Used primarily in divorces, collaborative law can be an effective tool for all disagreements in the court system.
Morneau Law is at the forefront of Collaborative Law practice. Each of our attorneys are fully trained by Collaborative Divorce New Hampshire and would be glad to meet with you to discuss the benefits of this Alternative Dispute Model.
Collaborative Law uses a team approach to resolve your dispute. Each client will have his or her own attorney to support and advise them through this process, along with a shared Collaborative Coach and Financial Planner to complete the team. The Collaborative Coach is a licensed mental health professional and focuses on constructive communication, management of difficult emotions conflict resolution, child development, family dynamics, and co-parenting techniques. The Financial Professional has one or more financial certifications and acts as a neutral expert in gathering and understanding relevant financial information (assets, debts, income, expenses).
Together this team will assist each client in making fully informed, intelligent and voluntary decisions. This legal approach can cut the expensive cost of contentious litigation by allowing the parties to move apart with mutual respect and dignity by creating results on their own terms. There is a better way to get divorced and we are here to help you get there!
