What is a Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative Divorce is a cooperative process in which both parties and their Collaboratively trained lawyers agree at the onset not to seek court intervention.  The crux of Collaborative law is that by removing the threat of going to court, parties can interact more openly and efficiently to realize results with less animosity toward each other.  The threat of litigation is formally removed with a contract signed by you, your spouse and the Collaborative law professionals involved in your case.  This contract is called a “Participation Agreement.”
