Modest Means Collaborative Divorce Program

This program provides Collaborative divorce services at a significantly reduced fee to those who qualify on the basis of income. Services are provided by attorneys, divorce coaches and financial neutrals who are CLII Fellows and have volunteered to participate in the program.

How to Apply
Modest Means Collaborative Divorce services are provided at a reduced fee, and are therefore contingent, in part, on your income.
