The CCND Advantage

There is a better way to handle your divorce
in the state of Connecticut.

The CCND Advantage means that you can:

  • Divorce with dignity and protect your privacy.
  • Understand your assets and secure your financial future.
  • Put your children and their well-being first.
  • Take advantage of a faster and more efficient process.
  • Keep court time to a minimum and stay in control of your divorce.
  • Work confidently with professionals you can trust.

How do I decide whether to Collaborate or Mediate?

Both processes have advantages, depending on the specifics of your situation. Generally, it is best to begin with a consultation with a CCND professional, and ask his/her opinion about which process is best for you. If you decide to collaborate, then the CCND professional you consult with can help you to assess what other professionals may be helpful to your divorce process and can help you to build your collaborative team.
