Resolving separation issues during COVID-19 using Collaborative Methods

We realize that the social distancing measures in place during COVID-19 will cause additional worries for separated families wondering how they will be able to obtain help to deal with their separation.  COVID-19 may also add new challenges which will need to be resolved relating to adjustments to the parenting plan, decision making, and support.

The collaborative method of resolving issues relating to a family separation is not impacted by COVID-19. 

The initial consultation (where you determine if the collaborative process is for you) can be done via video or teleconferencing means. We have implemented the resources to allow this to happen.  Often the next step involves parenting coaches, and many times, that too can begin using the same methods. The roadmap to resolve a collaborative matter will remain the same and team meetings can be accomplished in an efficient and effective manner while keeping the health of your family a first priority. With COVID-19 comes a lot of unknowns, however having the professional guidance of your collaborative team will provide your family with certainties and support. 

We are here to support the reorganization of your family and the issues surrounding your separation in a collaborative manner.  We can help you walk through each step while adhering to the recommendations of our government relating to COVID-19.

Please see our other articles, and check back in as we will be posting updated information to help you.
