The collaborative divorce process is a healthy and cost-effective alternative to the often contentious and costly traditional divorce litigation process. A “team” approach replaces the toxic “opposing” party/counsel paradigm allowing spouses and attorneys to work as an intact collaborative team, and spouses can expect a predictable, transparent, highly informed, and secure environment within which to negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement.
Depending on the unique needs and characteristics of each couple, the steps involved and the level of services needed will vary, but in every case both spouses/partners will receive the education, support, and guidance of skilled collaborative team members in reaching a dignified, durable, “fair and equitable” settlement outcome.
Low-Conflict, Respectful Divorce Process
Mutually Agreeable, Clean-Break Outcomes
Family-Friendly, Rational Approach
Brooks Baldwin spent eight years in the contentious area of litigation, a period of time that heightened her belief in the value of collaboration. Seeking a healthy shift in professional pursuits, Brooks transitioned to a 15-year career in freelance journalism specializing in spas and wellness. After learning about the holistic and family-centered approach to divorce that the Collaborative Divorce Process provides, Brooks opted to return to legal practice in 2011. Baldwin Collaborative Law was established, allowing Brooks to uniquely blend her legal background with her passion for enhancing the physical, spiritual, and emotional wellness of her clientele as they transition through the often-turbulent process of divorce.
