Sarah Wood Named Director Of Marketing For Collaborative Divorce Group
Attorney Sarah I. Wood of Donnellan Law, PLLC has been elected as the director of marketing for the Collaborative Divorce Association of the Capital District. In her role, she will promote awareness of the organization as well as the process of collaborative divorce.
Collaborative divorce is a form of “alternative dispute resolution” whereby couples agree to resolve their divorce matter outside of court. There is no trial and the couple works with a team of professionals to plan their divorce. Each party must retain a collaboratively trained attorney to represent them. In addition, one or two mental health professionals are retained to act as a coach to the parties as well as a financial neutral to resolve the financial aspects of the marriage.
Together, the team meets and problem solves all issues of the divorce allowing the parties to decide every aspect in their divorce. Each family is unique and no one family does things exactly like another.
Wood is collaboratively trained and able to represent couples seeking to use this form of alternative dispute resolution.
