In addition to legal counsel, the CLII Collaborative Divorce team also frequently includes a divorce coach, a financial specialist, and a child specialist.
A Divorce Coach helps each spouse manage the pain and strain of changing relationships while focusing on goals for the present and future.
A neutral Financial Specialist helps you and your spouse identify your options and alternatives by reviewing all assets and incomes, and assists in developing financial scenarios for the future well-being of all family members.
A neutral Child Specialist helps you and your spouse create parenting time plans and parenting arrangements customized to fit the unique needs of your family.
Why Retain a CLII Fellow?
While many lawyers, financial planners, mental health practitioners, coaches and child specialists call themselves “collaborative,” most have not met the rigorous requirements to become a CLII Fellow. This credential requires high ethical standards, ongoing training and a written commitment not to go to court, making your children the priority, exchanging information honestly and helping you and your spouse reach an out-of-court settlement with privacy and respect.
