What is collaborative divorce?
Collaborative divorce is a method for reaching agreements on all of your divorce-related issues through negotiation between you and your spouse with the help of your separate attorneys outside of court. In collaborative divorce, your attorneys will assist you towards reaching a divorce settlement agreement by using methods and strategies that foster cooperation and negotiation instead of adversarial litigation. The negotiations are conducted in four-way sessions between you, your spouse, and your individual attorneys. Because the process is done outside of the court, you and your spouse retain more control over your settlement agreement as opposed to having the court decide for you.
Generally, all parties will enter into a Participation Agreement which will outline the provisions for the negotiation sessions. The Participation Agreement will prohibit litigation while the negotiation sessions are ongoing and will typically contain such commitments as agreeing to use constructive communication, placing your children's best interests first, relying on the assistance of your attorneys or other professionals who may be needed to help work out a fair agreement, such as health care, child, or financial experts, and agreeing not to seek litigation against the other party unless the negotiations fail. Collaborative divorce is based on cooperation and a commitment to finding constructive ways to resolve your divorce issues.
