How can I learn more about collaborative divorce?

Plan to attend the Second Saturday Wisconsin educational session on August 9th.

Handling a divorce case as a collaborative divorce is a dispute resolution alternative to the traditional divorce approach.  While you may be familiar with the traditional approach, you may have little or no information about the collaborative divorce alternative. The collaborative divorce process offers a less adversarial approach to resolve disputes without court intervention.

A way to gather additional knowledge about this alternative is to attend one of the Second Saturday Wisconsin educational sessions hosted by the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin, an organization dedicated to the use of dispute resolution processes that are alternatives to the traditional litigation mode for dealing with family law issues.

The next session in the Milwaukee area will be held on August 9, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. at the Oak Creek Community Center, 8580 South Howell, Oak Creek.  A complete schedule for the upcoming sessions can be found at www.2ndSaturdayWisconsin.com.

The Second Saturday Wisconsin educational sessions are free, informal, and open to everyone.  There is no requirement to register in order to attend and there is no tracking of attendance. At each session an overview of the options for handling a divorce case is followed by a presentation about the collaborative process.  The presentation includes information about the collaborative divorce process works and who is involved in the process.  The presenters are all trained members of the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin and include an attorney, child specialist/coach, and financial neutral.

It is important to understand that questions about your specific situation will not be answered or discussed. The sessions are not a free legal service.  The sessions are intended to be a way to help you learn about the option of collaborative divorce.

More information about the collaborative divorce process and the names of attorneys, mental health professionals, and financial neutrals trained in the process can be found at the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin website www.collabdivorce.com.
