Collaborative Divorce

Definition - What does Collaborative Divorce mean?

A collaborative divorce is a type of divorce in which a couple works out a divorce settlement agreement between them with the help of collaborative attorneys and other divorce professionals. This saves both time and money instead of litigating through a divorce court.

Justipedia explains Collaborative Divorce

The lawyers in collaborative divorce cases are specialized attorneys whose job it is to help spouses reach a settlement. In a collaborative divorce, both spouses sign a participation agreement that binds them to the process. This document also forbids their respective collaborative attorneys to represent them if a settlement is not reached and the case goes to trial, due to the threat of a conflict of interests.
