Collaborative divorce

A new type of process in divorce is called “collaborative law.” In such a case, the parties enter into a Collaborative Law Agreement prior to any filing of divorce.

The agreement indicates that the parties will cooperate in providing discovery without the need for any court orders and that they will be forthcoming on all documents and general discovery.

The agreement also provides that the attorneys agree that in the event collaborative law process is not successful they will no longer represent the client. This encourages the attorney to work on a good-faith basis to try to settle this matter.

The collaborative law process is one that should be considered by the parties because it can result in a fair and equitable settlement governed by the parties themselves and not a third party.
