Collaborative Family Law (also called Collaborative Practice and Collaborative Divorce) creates a constructive and respectful environment to resolve disputes in private and in a manner that focuses on each person's needs, essentially putting control of the outcome in the participants' hands. This type of alternative dispute resolution process coordinates and fosters the cooperation of all persons involved to eliminate the negative economic and emotional consequences of litigation. The goal of the Collaborative Law Process is to maximize settlement options and increase effective communication between participants while reducing unnecessary conflict and prolonged disputes. The Collaborative Family Lawyers of Arkansas, Inc. was founded in 2010. Each practice group member continues to commit themselves to this process and to resolve differences fairly and equitably.
