PRINCIPLES OF THE PROCESS

Both parties and attorneys commit in good faith to do the following:

  • Cooperate by acting civilly at all times and by responding promptly to all reasonable requests for information from the other party.

  • Cooperate by fully disclosing all relevant financial information.

  • Cooperate by obtaining joint appraisals and/or other expert opinions before obtaining individual appraisals or expert opinions.

  • Cooperate by obtaining meaningful expert input (e.g., a child specialist) before requesting a custody study or the appointment of a guardian ad litem

  • Cooperate in good faith negotiation sessions, including 4-way sessions where appropriate, to reach fair compromises based on valid information.

  • Cooperate by conducting themselves at all times in a respectful, civil and professional manner.
