Collaborative Practice and LGBTQ+ Families

Collaborative Practice is particularly helpful for LGBTQ+ families – with or without children – going through dissolution because:

  • the process can be structured to serve your family’s real needs, giving you control over where to spend your resources and energy; 
  • the Collaborative Practice process can help you create solutions that work for your family; 
  • Collaborative Practice is not a “one size fits all” process; it can be tailored to each couple’s expectations and needs rather than relying on an area of the law that is confusing and unsettled with regard to LGBTQ+ issues; and 
  • in a Collaborative Practice process, you can take into consideration tax and other consequences that are unique to LGBTQ+ families.
