Team members fist bumping over a table with laptopsA Team is stronger together!

The best results happen when you have a team that interacts collaboratively with you and each other!  It's that teamwork that allows Family Divorce Solutions to have such an outstanding success rate with their clients.

Formed in October 2011, Family Divorce Solutions of San Fernando Valley (formerly known as San Fernando Valley Collaborative Professionals) is comprised of experienced, licensed and trained attorneys, mental health professionals and financial neutrals.

Our area of expertise is collaborative divorce, which is mainly applied in divorce cases and family law. Our attorneys work with mental health professionals and financial experts to offer various levels of expertise to clients. Our goal is to get both parties together and quickly come to a solution without going to court.

Collaborative / Mediation Professionals are a TEAM

The Collaborative process saves individuals time and money as opposed to going through the court system. The Collaborative process addresses the emotional needs of the family throughout the process to mitigate the negative impact of divorce on the clients, the children and the family.
