Collaborative Divorce is a legal process enabling couples who have decided to separate or end their marriage to work with their lawyers and other professionals to avoid the uncertain outcome of court decisions and to achieve a settlement that best meets the specific needs of both parties and their children.

Mediation

Stage One: Neutral Mediator → State Two: Information Sharing → Stage Three: Negotiating with Parties → Stage Four: Final Agreement

Stage Four: Final Agreement

Mediation is a dynamic, structured, interactive process where a neutral third party assists disputing parties in resolving conflict through the use of specialized communication and negotiation techniques. As a mediator Ms. Campbell also prepares the documents the court requires to finalize a dissolution to insure each couples’ agreements are enforceable should that prove necessary.

Our Family In Two Homes (OFTH) Resource Package

At the outset I provide clients with a workbook containing basic legal information about California divorce law.  After couples review it, on their own or together, we meet again to plan how and through which process I can best help you.  The following are some possible path choices and my role:

  • Draft documents confirming the agreements you reached.  Work through the court so you can get divorced without either spouse ever entering a courtroom;
  • Mediate contested divorce issues.  I educate both spouses on your divorce topics like the legal requirements and possible creative solutions.  We resolve contested issues together;
  • Provide legal advice and representation in a collaborative divorce from the first meeting through final judgment;
  • Consult and provide background legal advice to you individual while another mediator assists you both in resolving your divorce; and/or
  • Explore what divorce help you need or want so your divorce process choice is an informed decision.

My office provides the following benefits:

  1. Highly Tailored Legal Advice:
    • Minimizes the costs of legal help by prioritizing the legal advice you need and desire most.
    • Empowers you to focus on and learn about the divorce issues most relevant to your family.
    • Tailor the legal advice and provide other resources to meet your unique needs.
  2. Legal and Interpersonal Information:
    • Explains basic California law on custody, parenting plans, child support, spousal support, and property division.
    • Explores and addresses your conflict approach and trust challenges.  When spouses are more engaged they create sustainable results.
    • Promotes more effective communication for healthier future interactions and/or co-parenting moving forward.
  3. Values:
    • Identify and prioritize values: Financial stability?  Raising children?  Living within a particular spiritual or religious tradition?  Health concerns?  Long-term career goals?
    • Ensure all proposed divorce-related resolutions are guided by their personal north star.
