What Is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative law is a relatively new approach to resolving family law issues. Unlike traditional divorce litigation, the collaborative law approach avoids the courtroom and allows couples to amicably resolve issues with their attorneys.

To begin the process, all parties sign an agreement that must be honored throughout the proceedings. Once signed, parties can begin working out solutions to items such as child support, alimony, property distribution, visitation rights and all other aspects associated with their divorce.

Benefits of the Collaborative Law Approach

There are many reasons why a couple would want to try the collaborative approach to finalize a divorce. They include:

  • You will save time, money and energy.
  • You can create a personalized, mutually beneficial agreement.
  • All discussions and agreements are confidential.
  • It allows for creative solutions to difficult issues.
  • You will have more control over the end result.

Of course, not all couples who try the collaborative law approach will be able to agree on everything. Should this occur, the process will end and both you and your spouse will be able to go through the normal divorce process with new representation.
