Legal ServicesNon-Profit Organizations
We are in an interdisciplinary group of highly trained and ethical divorce professionals dedicated to helping Illinois families divorce with dignity and respect. We use and promote the Collaborative Process as an alternative to litigated divorce.Collaborative Divorce works through a series of meetings between you, your spouse, and your Collaborative Team. These meetings are held in private offices – not in public court rooms!
Our members are Illinois Collaborative Divorce Attorneys, Divorce Coaches, Child Specialists, and Certified Financial Advisors who believe in Collaborative Practice. CDI Members are committed to the highest standard of professional excellence. All of our members are specially trained in Collaborative Practice and mediation. They are all also licensed in their area of professional expertise.
All members of Collaborative Divorce Illinois are committed to upholding the Collaborative Law Principles and Guidelines. These include, among other things, a commitment to:
“Being collaborative” is NOT the same as being a Collaborative Divorce Professional. While many divorce professionals today claim to “be collaborative,” unless they have been specially trained in the Collaborative Divorce Process, they may not have the skills, experience, or expertise in Collaborative Practice that you need in order to help you resolve your divorce using the Collaborative Process.
CDI divorce professionals are client-centered and dedicated to maintaining professional excellence. They are highly qualified and committed to the ethical practice of the Collaborative Process.
