Our Mission

The Bucks County Collaborative Law Group's purpose is to inform the public about the Collaborative Law process, assist people in finding qualified Collaborative Professionals in and around Bucks County, PA., and help divorcing families resolve differences with dignity and cooperation and without court intervention.

We seek to help families and individuals resolve disputes together, facilitate collaborative problem solving and help families manage the financial, emotional and legal impact of divorce. We acknowledge that divorcing parents and partners know their families best and strive to help keep decision making in their hands.

We acknowledge the basic dignity and right to peaceful resolution of every person involved in divorce. We support a calm, problem-solving approach to issues of child care and custody, with the intent of helping divorcing couples' work together to create the best possible outcome for their children.

Our mission is fourfold:

  • to educate the public and other professionals in and around Bucks County, PA. as to what Collaborative Law is and how it can benefit them;
  • to assist individuals and couples in finding appropriately trained collaborative professionals in the area;
  • To be a resource for education and current information about Collaborative Law for professionals, individuals seeking divorce and the media;
  • To provide a professional platform for qualified lawyers, financial advisors, counselors and other collaborative participants in which local and national issues may be discussed, educational opportunities expanded and a forum in which ethical and industry standards for Collaborative Law may be discussed and promulgated.

Ultimately, we believe that the Collaborative Law process is the latest and best opportunity for families of divorce to recapture the hopefulness and respect with which they began the union. This allows both sides to preserve self-respect and map a clear path for the future.
