Did you know there is more than one type of divorce?
You might believe that the standard divorce process involves a long, nasty and uncomfortable courtroom battle. That is not the truth. Depending on your case there can be more than one process option to get through a divorce. Litigation is still an option, but there is a more modern way to divorce called Collaborative Divorce. Below is a quick outline to help you decide which divorce process is right for your family.
