Seattle Collaborative Divorce and Family Law Lawyers

Helping you decide what is best for you and your family.

In the "referral model", the parties do not retain allied professionals at the start of their case.  Instead, the process is initiated with only the parties and their attorneys.

Through a series of meetings, the parties attempt to negotiate a resolution that maximizes the benefits to all of those involved.  If the parties are unable to reach a final resolution or issues come up that warrant exploration by non-lawyer professionals, these experts can be brought in on an "as needed" basis.

The primary benefit to the referral model is that it saves some of the initial costs.  The down side, however, is that when divorce proceedings are initiated the parties are often in crisis.  With many of our clients, the world as they knew it has suddenly imploded. 

During this difficult and emotionally charged time, it is often hard for parties to simultaneously keep their perspective while focusing in on the critical issues requiring resolution. 

This is where outside professionals can provide the maximum benefit, particularly if they are brought in at the start of your case.  To learn more about this approach and your options, we recommend that you give us a call for a free consultation.
