WELCOME TO LOS ANGELES COLLABORATIVE FAMILY LAW ASSOCIATION
Collaborative Practice is a voluntary out-of-court process for you and your spouse to resolve the legal, financial and emotional issues of your divorce or separation. You and your spouse are represented by collaboratively trained attorneys. These attorneys are disqualified from representing you in court. Successful teams include coaches for each spouse, the use of a child specialist, and trained divorce financial advisors.
