Collaborative law is a specific type of legal representation that allows you and your spouse to work outside of the litigation process. You and your spouse will each have your own Collaborative Divorce Lawyer and you will sign a contract to commit to the process. The goal is for a resolution to be negotiated in a non-adversarial process. You still have to go through full document disclosure to make sure that any resolution that you reach is done so with a full understanding of the financial situation of your family.
Your Collaborative lawyer can also arrange for you to work with Divorce Coaches or financial planners if that is needed.
