“There are many different ways to manage your divorce”

We at HCCP+ wish to formally offer a variety of non-litigated methods that allow couples to choose the method that best suits their preferences, needs and means. Although all HCCP+ members are collaboratively trained and recognize that the full-team collaborative method is superior in many cases, we also wish to explain the range of non-court-based approaches that we offer for cou-ples to consider. The methods described below are all variations on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in which (a) both par-ties must agree on all decisions, and (b) all information that is shared remains confidential, unlike in litigated so-lutions where neither (a) nor (b) are true.
