Dear CCND Members:

We have all been following the rapidly evolving COVID-19 news with concern for the personal, professional, and societal impacts of this pandemic. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, and Connecticut Department of Public Health, and consistent with the Governor’s recent executive order, CCND is taking steps to support the health and safety of our members and friends. We are rescheduling our March Dinner Meeting, Access to Collaborative – A New Age of Streamlined Models to June, and will monitor COVID-19 developments as we assess plans for our other upcoming programs. CCND will continue updating its members as further information becomes available and decisions are made. Check our website,, for updates on future events and possible rescheduling.

What is Non-Adversarial Divorce?

Managing Your Divorce Through Collaboration

You and your spouse can successfully end your marriage without litigation if you have the same goal in mind: divorcing without further emotional and financial damage, and staying out of the courtroom. Non-adversarial divorce includes the Collaborative Process and Mediation, both of which are designed to keep you out of court. Our members are trained to focus you and your spouse on the issues.
