Our mission is to advance Collaborative Practice as a conflict resolution option in Illinois.


Every divorce is different.

But it doesn’t have to be nearly as difficult as you might have been led to believe.

Rather than “taking sides,” your team of skilled Illinois professionals works together to support your journey through the emotional, financial and legal aspects of this fundamental change.

We invite you to learn more about the advantages of collaborative divorce in Illinois, where teams of professionals help you settle your divorce out of court. Along the way, you will often save time and money. Even more, you gain peace of mind.
