What Sets Our Professionals Apart?

The Central Ohio Academy of Collaborative Divorce Professionals strives to educate the community about the collaborative process. Our other focus on training ensures that the professionals who make up your team have the resources to help you move through the process as smoothly as possible.

We are not just lawyers, but also financial professionals, mental health practitioners and real estate appraisers. All of our members have attended basic collaborative law training and most have invested the time and energy on advanced training. All of our members have also had mediation training.

A Framework That Ensures Outstanding Service

COACDP has developed over the years that members are expected to follow. These make up a framework that provides consistency in the service we provide to families making difficult decisions about property division, child custody and child or spousal support.

The training requirements and the we have put in place are what set our member professionals apart from others in central Ohio who may claim to practice the collaborative family law process.
