Memphis Collaborative Alliance
Collaborative divorce clients choose specially trained collaborative divorce lawyers who are committed to negotiating a complete and enduring settlement. Clients and attorneys agree by contract to work together respectfully, honestly and in good faith to find win-win solutions for the legitimate needs of both parties. Clients agree in advance not to go to court, except to secure the actual divorce decree, and only in uncontested proceedings. Negotiations are conducted primarily in meetings with both the clients and attorneys in the room. Full disclosure and transparency are hallmarks of this process. Gamesmanship, threats to “see you in court” and the like are absent in this process by agreement.
provides a framework for negotiation and an alternative to litigation that allows the parties to resolve their dispute with dignity and negotiate a mutually acceptable settlement without having a Court decide the disputed issues.
empowers you to resolve your legal disputes without judges, magistrates or court personnel making decisions for you and offers you a safe and dignified environment to reduce the conflict and minimize its impact on you, your children, your family and your life.
The Collaborative dispute
resolution process helps in keeping the parties’ financial and emotional resources intact while they are going through what can be a very financially and emotionally draining experience.
