"“The process of divorcing doesn’t have to add to the pain. The Collaborative Process provides a peaceful alternative to divorce as a battleground.”


-- Mark Springfield,


Mark Springfield restricts his family law practice to collaborative law. As a


pioneer in this alternative to court, he was featured in a front-page article in the Raleigh News &


Observer in November of 2003. The collaborative process requires that divorcing spouses and


their attorneys all agree to stay out of court, to fully and voluntarily


disclose information, to consider the best interests of the children, and to


meet to negotiate issues in “four-way conferences,” conferences that include


the two spouses and their attorneys. In the rare


instance that the parties are unable to reach agreement in the


collaborative process, then different attorneys


must be hired to take the matter to court.


Mr. Springfield is a member of Separating Together, Inc., a collaborative practice group located in Raleigh. The Separating Together attorneys are experienced, independent attorneys who restrict their law practices to handling family matters, such as separation and divorce, through non-adversarial, transformative conflict resolution and settlement Springfield, the mostnegotiation.

While Mr. Springfield was a trial lawyer for fourteen years, he feels his best gifts are in helping people


effectively communicate to reach win/win agreements out of court. For


Mr. Springfield, the most compelling reason for the collaborative approach is the potential for


transformation. Spouses, particularly when they are parents, often find


themselves able to relate to each other in healthier


ways after the collaborative process for divorce.
