Collaborative Divorce Law and Legal Definition

Collaborative divorce is a method for divorcing couples to come to a consensus on divorce issues. In a collaborative divorce, the parties are empowered to make their own decisions based on their own needs and interests, but with the aid of attorneys. Collabarative divorce is substantially less expensive than any other divorce methods.

Collabarative divorce is a family law process enabling couples who have decided to separate or end their marriage to work with their lawyers based on specific needs of both parties and their children without the underlying threat of contested litigation. The voluntary process is initiated when the couple signs a contract that binds the parties to the process. This divorce process disqualifys their respective lawyer's right to represent either one in any future family related litigation.
