Collaborative Divorce is a way for you to resolve your divorce respectfully without going to court while working with trained professionals. The heart of Collaborative Practice or Collaborative Divorce, also called “no court divorce”, is a peaceful divorce that offers you and your spouse the support, protection, and guidance of your own lawyer without going to court. Additionally, Collaborative Divorce allows you the benefit of child and financial specialists, divorce coaches and other professionals all working together as a team. In Collaborative Divorce, the core elements form your contractual commitments which are to negotiate a mutually acceptable settlement without having the court decide issues, maintain open communication and information sharing, and create shared solutions acknowledging the highest priorities of all of the parties. A Collaborative Divorce can only occur if both parties agree contractually to utilize the Collaborative Practice only. If one party does not wish to participate in the Collaborative Divorce process then the case would become a normal divorce with litigation involving the court system. Collaborative Divorces can only be handled by attorneys specializing and certified as Collaborative Law attorneys.
