Collaborative Law and Shared Parenting Plans
Litigation approaches the creation of shared parenting plans by pitting parents against each other. This makes sense; litigation is a dispute resolution process. But what if the challenge was approached as a mutual challenge instead of a disagreement?
Collaborative Law is a systemized process designed to address feelings of distrust, anxiety and anger. By addressing the root of these feelings, participants most often then are able to work together to address decisions and challenges relating to custody, parenting time and the division of responsibilities.
The Collaborative Law Process can also be used to modify shared parenting plans. To learn more about Collaborative Law, shared parenting plans and my practice and legal approach, please review my firm overview or contact my office.
