What Is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative divorce is a new way of processing a divorce through the court system, whereby the parties, unlike in a contested setting, work with one another – as do the attorneys – to find a favorable resolution agreeable to all. It is a new movement, because of the large expense that happens a lot of times with contested divorces. It works its way through the system (it has some different discovery rules, things of that nature) and if the attorneys are unable to get the parties to agree on a divorce settlement, they are required by the rules to withdraw from the case at that point.
