Atlanta Collaborative Divorce Alliance

ACDA Home Page

            The Atlanta Collaborative Divorce Alliance (ACDA) is a highly experienced group of independent family law attorneys, financial experts, child specialists and divorce coaches who promote the use of collaborative practice to resolve family matters in a non-adversarial manner. The members of ACDA are committed to using an interdisciplinary team approach to resolve all family law conflicts. Each party has his or her own lawyer and divorce coach, a financial neutral is retained who works for the process, rather than either party, and, where children are involved, a child specialist is retained to give voice for the children.

             The Collaborative family law approach makes the process of ending a marriage or long term relationship more respectful. The goal of Collaborative family law is a process to improve communication, decrease conflict, preserve finances and work toward the best interests of the children. That goal is accomplished by engaging in meetings with the parties and their attorneys, coaches, child specialist and the financial neutral.

             The hallmark of Collaborative law is the parties’ pledge to resolve all the issues without going to court. The parties and their attorneys enter into a contract which provides that the attorneys will not represent the parties in litigation. The parties work together with the team of professionals to reach an agreement that recognizes what is important to both parties and the children. The end result is an agreement that meets everyone’s needs and preserves confidentiality.

 The Atlanta Collaborative Divorce Alliance strives to promote a respectful and non-adversarial environment in which to resolve conflicts. The Atlanta Collaborative Divorce Alliance achieves the above goals by:

  • Ensuring the highest quality interdisciplinary team work
  • Educating the public and professional community on the value of collaborative practice
  • Meeting the emotional, financial and legal needs of their clients
  • Assisting couples in keeping control of the outcome, rather than having others make decisions
  • Helping couples stay focused on their most important goals
  • Above all else, finding solutions that are in the children's best interest
