Collaborative Divorce

Bill McDavid has been a team member of the Collaborative Divorce Professionals of Gainsville since its inception in 2006.

Collaborative divorce is often called "no-court divorce" because it is a new way to divorce without the traditional divorce litigations. In collaborative divorce, couples treat each other with dignity and respect. They work together to dissolve the marriage in a respectful, considerate way that helps insure that agreements endure and protect the well-being of children.

Each spouse has an attorney and a team of trained collaborative professionals, including a financial professinal, a divorce coach or mental health professional and a child advocate. Instead of going in front of a judge and a courtroom, both spouses and their attorney sit down together to work out the details of the dissolution of their marriage, with the help of their team.
