Collaborative Divorce. Fred Dilley and Barbra Homier are both collaboratively-trained attorneys. In a collaborative divorce, both parties agree to settle without going to court. This enables them to work out issues directly with one another in a structured and safe environment. Both parties retain attorneys trained in collaborative divorce to help with mediation. This method often incorporates the services of financial services professionals and family counselors to help sort out the monetary and emotional repercussions of a divorce. A collaborative divorce is particularly productive when minor children are involved. Further, collaborative divorce can be significantly less expensive than custody and property battles from a long term perspective.
