About CCND

A Professional Connecticut Non-Profit Organization

The Connecticut Council for Non-Adversarial Divorce (CCND) is the statewide non-profit professional organization of Connecticut mediators and collaborative divorce practitioners.  Our membership includes attorneys, mental health professionals and financial specialists. Our mission is to change the way people divorce or separate in Connecticut by reducing conflict and improving the lives of family members – especially children.

CCND Mission Statement

The Connecticut Council for Non-Adversarial Divorce (CCND) is a multi-disciplinary professional association, whose mission is to:

  • Promote dignified, respectful, and private processes through mediation and collaborative divorce;
  • Establish and preserve the highest standards of practice and integrity
  • Require and facilitate professional education for its members
  • Promote non-adversarial conflict resolution
  • Increase awareness of alternatives to litigation

Mediation and Collaboration is Fair and Legally Enforceable

Making the Right Choice

If you are divorcing or separating, we are a multi-faceted resource for you to learn about your options. By making the right choice in the beginning, and choosing to mediate or collaborate rather than litigate the end of your marriage, we can help prevent a bitter, endless or expensive struggle; create a respectful process for you and your children; and work out a fair, legally enforceable settlement.

We’ll help you find the right practitioner for your divorce or separation.

We offer a free searchable database to locate a mediator, collaborative divorce practitioner or other divorce professional. This list includes individuals from the legal, mental health and financial professions. Click here to find a professional, or call us at 860-967-4685 for more information.
