This web site is for for Wisconsin couples and families to learn about collaborative law and help you find the appropriate professionals for your situation.

See NEWS FOR YOU below with dates & times of free educational sessions about divorce options in Wisconsin via the Second Saturday program. The next session will be Saturday, February 14 at Concordia University in Mequon.

 

The Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin, Inc. (CFLCW) is a not-for-profit association of attorneys, financial experts, divorce coaches and child specialists trained in the Collaborative Divorce. Read About who we are.

There are very important differences between the Collaborative Process and traditional litigation. Throughout this website you can view brief videos about those differences, how the Collaborative Process works, and the professionals that practice Collaborative.

Susan Hansen, JD, an experienced Collaborative attorney,discusses the uniqueness of the Collaborative Process:

 

Here are 5 recommended steps to follow to learn more about the Collaborative Process:

  1. Learn about what "collaborative divorce" is all about - Beginning in the green menu bar above is a link called "Learn About Collaborative." That is the first page of a self-directed Tour of Collaborative; it provides an overview of the process and what you can expect.

  2. Talk to a collaborative professional - You can search for an attorney or a coach on this website at our Search for a Professional page.

  3. Introduce the Collaborative approach with your spouse or partner. This is a voluntary process. It is important for both of you to agree that Collaborative is the best process for you to use to get through your divorce.

  4. Put together Your Team. Once you and your partner have agreed to use the Collaborative process, you will each retain your attorney and meet with him or her prior to a first joint meeting.

  5. Schedule a First Joint Meeting. At the first joint meeting you will sign the Collaborative Participation Agreement, identify your major goals and concerns, and plan the next steps of your process.

You are encouraged to read through the detailed description of collaborative practice on this website. We also have a detailed Frequently Asked Questions.
