Collaborative Divorce is a process for resolving divorce cases, without the use of litigation. No one may go to court, or even threaten to do so. It allows spouses to survive divorce, stay sane, and keep their futures intact.
Both spouses retain separate, specially-trained lawyers whose only job is to help them to settle the issues in their divorce. All participants agree to work together, respectfully, honestly, and in good faith, voluntarily and freely exchanging information, to find mutually acceptable solutions to the legitimate needs of both spouses.
Most often, Collaborative Divorce costs less, financially and emotionally, and takes less time than a litigated case.
