In a collaborative divorce, both parties are represented by separate attorneys.
The parties, and their lawyers, sign an agreement not to go to court and instead to work together to create an agreement that is best for the parties and their children.
The parties can end the process if it does not work, but, if they go to court to have a judge decide, they will each need to hire another lawyer. This keeps the lawyers and parties invested in reaching an agreement.
Collaborative divorce can cost far less than a traditional or litigated divorce and can help preserve the family and keep children out of the process.
