For Professionals, Clients & People You Care About!

PASADENA COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE (PCD) offers this FREE PUBLIC SERVICE to empower couples to make well-informed and effective long-term decisions.

  • Options offered help preserve respect and money.
  • Attendees learn to understand and manage the legal, financial, and emotional aspects of divorce.
  • Topics include: the different divorce options, the pros and cons and relative costs of each, divorce-related terms, and which approach may provide desired outcomes under different financial or interpersonal circumstances.

Few people are actually familiar with all the divorce options, for example:

  • Self-Representation ("Do-it-yourself")
  • Mediation (Traditional, Co-Mediation or Enhanced)
  • Collaborative Divorce
  • Traditional Litigated Divorce
