Collaborative Family Law is a way to resolve family law disputes respectfully and without going to court.
The collaborative process is based on a pledge not to go to court, an open exchange of information and reaching the best possible agreement for your family.
In the collaborative process, each client has the support, protection and guidance of his or her own attorney who works with the collaborative team.
The collaborative team includes a neutral mental health professional and a neutral financial professional. Other professionals may be included depending on the needs of your family. Each client has the option of choosing the professionals with whom they wish to work.
The collaborative process recognizes that even though a legal agreement to end a marriage is being sought, relationships and obligations may continue especially if children are involved. This process helps all family members move forward in a positive way and minimizes the pain of a very emotional and difficult transition.
Dr. Kelly utilizes the interdisciplinary model of collaborative practice. She has served as a mental health neutral, child specialist and coach.
