What Is Collaborative Divorce?
Collaborative divorce is in alternative model to the typical court-based, high-stress divorce. It uses a team approach to reduce the emotional toll on the parties (and their children) as well as resolve the divorce with a mutually beneficial agreement.

- It starts with the Parties and their Attorneys pledging not to go to court on any issue other than finalizing the divorce.
- In fact, the case is only truly “collaborative” when the Attorneys agree to withdraw from the case if it becomes necessary to go to court for any reason.
- The Parties agree to work as part of a Team and to freely exchange information.
- A result that is Customized and Confidential that is typically outside the Courtroom “box” that accompanies the traditional model.
- What are the benefits of collaborative law?
- The Ultimate Result, a creative, individual family specific, solution.
- Reduces the emotional toll and stress on the family.
- Confidential – sensitive family and financial information stays out of the public eye.
- Avoids the costly legal fees associated with litigation.
- Who is on the Team?
- The Team consists of the Parties, Attorneys, and other collaboratively trained professionals as needed.
- These can include: financial experts, mediators, and communication “facilitators.”
- Not every possible team member is used on every case; each family’s needs are different.
