Who We Are: CPVT Divorce
Collaborative Divorce Vermont (also known as Collaborative Practice Vermont) is an interdisciplinary group of attorneys, mental health professionals, and financial professionals, dedicated to helping couples and families separate or divorce respectfully. We believe in educating Vermonters about their options for resolving their separation or divorce, and in promoting the collaborative process as an alternative to family law litigation. We also believe in advancing Collaborative Practice as an option for conflict resolution in other areas of Vermont law.

We place great value in assuring our Vermont Collaborative Professional members are both well trained in their primary field of practice and have a high level of skill, commitment and training to Collaborative Practice. Each of us is licensed in our area of profession and in good standing with our profession’s licensing board or governing administrative body.
Our professionals work with clients throughout the State of Vermont.
Why Choose a Collaborative Divorce Vermont Professional?
If you choose Collaborative Divorce, you know your team of CPVT Professionals is committed to an atmosphere of honesty, cooperation, integrity, professionalism, dignity, respect, and candor to find acceptable solutions that honor your individual interests as well as your family’s.

Each CPVT Professional is also a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP), which is a global resource for Vermont’s collaborative practice. This means that Collaborative Divorce Vermont Professionals have unique access to national and international colleagues for resources, training, and client-centered professional growth.
