How Does The Collaborative Process Work?

The collaborative process is a modern alternative to trials in resolving divorce disputes.

It differs from mediation in that both parties enter into a written agreement to exhaust all efforts to settle their disputes in a boardroom, before resorting to a courtroom.

Collaborative law involves the assistance of a collaborative team that you and your spouse select. Issues are resolved in an open forum, customized to your family's unique needs. This alternative dispute process often saves both time and money for both parties.

A Way To Take Control Of Your Life

During the collaborative divorce process, you and your spouse must make an effort to identify areas of agreement and work hard toward resolution. The process puts you in control of decision-making related to you and your children.

Rather than being forced to follow a judge's order dictating how you will conduct your future affairs, the collaborative process is designed to give you and your spouse the ability to analyze and identify your family's unique needs, and draft a settlement that is the best fit possible as you reorganize your family structure.
