The Mid-Jersey Collaborative Law Alliance is a group of attorneys, financial and mental health professionals and advisors who, after years of experience, have come to believe that there is a better alternative to taking family issues to court. Our members, whose offices are located in Mercer, Middlesex and Somerset Counties, recognize the emotional and financial concerns faced by families going through the life-transition that a divorce requires.
The heart of Collaborative Practice is to offer you and your spouse or partner the support, protection, and guidance of your own lawyers without going to court. Additionally, Collaborative Practice allows you the benefit of child and financial specialists, divorce coaches and other professionals all working together on your team.
In Collaborative Practice, core elements form your contractual commitments, which are to:
Maintain communication and information sharing.
Create shared solutions acknowledging the highest priorities of all.
Negotiate a mutually acceptable settlement without having courts decide issues.
Our goal is to make you and your spouse active participants — not merely outside observers — to the transition from an intact family to one which will move forward as separate individuals.
As collaborative professionals, we can help you resolve divorce issues with dignity and respect.
