Collaborative divorce is a non-litigated, ADR method to help couples settle their divorce without the courts involvement. Collaborative law utilizes an interdisciplinary team of specially trained professionals made up of two Collaboratively trained attorneys, one neutral mental health professional and one neutral financial professional, who work together with the parties in a series of joint meetings. The parties voluntarily agree to abide by a non-litigated process: no depositions, hearings, subpoenas or opposing experts. Financial costs are frequently lower, the emphasis is on cooperation and privacy, and the parties work toward reaching an agreement that meets the needs and interests of their entire family. This allows the couple to learn better communication skills, to work together toward a win-win for each party, to focus on the welfare of their children as they parent together and to use interest based negotiation to resolve their disputes.
