Oklahoma Academy of Collaborative Professionals
Collaborative Practice is a way for spouses to resolve their divorce respectfully, without going to court. The Collaborative Law model was developed in Minnesota in the 1980s. Each client has the support, protection and guidance of his or her own lawyer. While Collaborative lawyers are always a part of the process, sometimes child specialists, financial specialists and divorce coaches become involved as part of the clients' team. Clients choose professionals as needed and benefit from their expertise and support throughout the process.
