Collaboratively Creating Solutions
The independent members of CDR will help you create the solution to your marital problem out of court. We are all highly trained and experienced divorce attorneys, family specialists and financial neutrals familiar with both litigation and collaboration. Through a series of collaborative meetings, you will define the goals you wish to achieve and tell us your concerns.
The team of professionals you select will guide you through a resolution in a respectful and efficient process. The team includes two lawyers (one selected by each of you), a family specialist helps you develop a parenting plan tailored to the needs of your children and monitors emotional issues during settlement meetings; the financial neutral provides detailed financial planning, including college costs and retirement options. The financial neutral also organizes, documents and explains current and projected income, assets and liabilities.
The team provides you with multiple options for the future financial welfare of each person in your family, including your children.
By explaining, in specific detail, the options available to resolve your situation, each member of your collaborative team empowers you to move forward, while protecting your children and each of you. This alternative to litigation and mediation is now available to Long Island couples via CDR.
