Coalition for Collaborative Divorce (CCD)

Represented Counties:  Ventura  Los Angeles
Comments: Coalition for Collaborative Divorce (CCD) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families restructure their lives in a positive and cooperative manner. The goal is to resolve conflict and avoid litigation in resolving family law matters.

Since 1999*, the professionals of Coalition for Collaborative Divorce, “CCD,” have been assisting divorcing clients in Los Angeles County and Ventura County.

CCD Collaborative Professionals are passionate about helping families restructure their lives as positively as possible. They are: Collaborative Attorneys, Mental Health Professionals and Certified Public Accountants (“C.P.A.s”) as well as Attorney-Mediators. Currently, a QDRO Attorney and a Financial Planner are also affiliated with CCD.

Collaborative Attorneys provide legal guidance for their divorce clients and work together to help their clients negotiate a collaborative divorce. The collaborative team may also include Coaches to help with communication, a Child Specialist to represent the voice of the child/ren and help prepare a parenting plan, and a C.P.A. working as a Neutral Financial to help resolve financial issues for our clients.

CCD serves a wide area:

Los Angeles County clients in Agoura, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Encino and other San Fernando Valley locations, as well as West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and the San Gabriel Valley plus Glendale and Burbank;


Ventura County clients in Ventura, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Camarillo and Newbury Park, and the Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village area.

Each of CCD’s Collaborative Divorce Professionals has had the required Collaborative training. He or she meets the Standards of Practice as set forth by The Coalition for Collaborative Divorce (CCD) and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP.)

The Coalition for Collaborative Divorce is a member group of Collaborative Practice California, (“CP Cal.”) The CCD participating Collaborative Professionals are required to be members in good standing of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, “IACP.”
