- Collaborative Practice
“Collaborative Practice is a way for you to resolve disputes respectfully — without going to court — while working with trained professionals who are important to all areas of your life.”
-International Academy of Collaborative Professionals
In Collaborative Practice, participants agree to form contractual commitments based on
- Negotiating a mutually acceptable settlement without having courts decide issues,
- Maintaining open communication and sharing information, and
- Creating solutions which acknowledge the highest priorities of all participants.
The VaCP team approach offers clients a choice of professionals in the legal, financial and emotional aspects of divorce and other civil and commercial disputes. Clients get the support they need to preserve continuing relationships. They consider issues that are important to them, and then create an individual, confidential settlement. The Collaborative Process works well in cases of
- Separation, divorce, child custody and prenuptial agreements
- Business or partnership dissolution
- Wills and probate
- Customer services and contracts
