Attorney-CDFA Relationships: Case Studies on TeamworkView Session
We will go through four case studies based on real cases and discuss the successes, failures, frustrations, and outcomes. The focal point for each will be how the CDFA recognizes issues that may be in the attorney’s blind spot. Significant emphasis will be placed on issues pertaining to current taxes, future taxes, and future cash flows based on the proposed property settlement. We will also discuss areas where we might obstruct efficient settlement.

What Is Collaborative Practice and How Can a CDFA Be Part of the Process 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
What Is Collaborative Practice and How Can a CDFA Be Part of the ProcessView Session
Collaborative Practice is a voluntary dispute resolution process in which parties settle without resort to litigation.
In Collaborative Practice:
- The parties sign a collaborative participation agreement describing the nature and scope of the matter;
- The parties voluntarily disclose all information which is relevant and material to the matter that must be decided;
- The parties agree to use good faith efforts in their negotiations to reach a mutually acceptable settlement;
- Each party must be represented by a lawyer whose representation terminates upon the undertaking of any contested court proceeding;
- The parties may engage mental health and financial professionals whose engagement terminates upon the undertaking of any contested court proceeding; and
- The parties may jointly engage other experts as needed.
Collaborative Practice provides you and your spouse or partner with the support and guidance of your own lawyers without going to court. Additionally, Collaborative Practice allows you the benefit of coaches, child, and financial specialists all working together with you on your team.
In Collaborative Practice, core elements form your commitments to this process, which are to:
Negotiate a mutually acceptable resolution without having courts decide issues.
Maintain open communication and information sharing.
Create shared solutions acknowledging the highest priorities of all.
Financial Professionals work as Neutral Members of the Professional Team and play an important role in the Collaborative Process. From helping gather all of the financial information concerning the family, to developing strategies and potential outcomes that meet the party’s goals and interests, having the work handled by a Neutral Individual can make the difference for any spouse who is concerned about a power imbalance that may have occurred during the marriage. The Financial Neutral is paid on an hourly basis and while they cannot accept any post CP business from either party (which would question Neutrality) they often cross-refer to other Financial Specialists involved in their Collaborative Practice Group.
Join me in learning about this powerful process and how it can help you find passion in helping families going through Divorce.
