How Does A Collaborative Divorce Work?
Both parties must agree to retain attorneys trained in Collaborative Law. The clients, attorneys, and coach/facilitator sign a Collaborative Process Agreement.
Negotiations take place during meetings in which the clients, attorneys, and coach/facilitator actively participate. Other professionals such as financial neutrals or mental health professionals may be brought in as necessary.
Once a settlement is reached, the attorneys draft an agreement that represents the decisions made by the clients. This agreement is submitted to the Court for approval.
