Dispute Resolution Lawyers

Collaborative law is an alternative dispute resolution method that has become commonly used to resolve divorce issues. Through collaborative law, couples can reach a divorce settlement that encapsulates the goals and wishes of all the parties involved.

In a collaborative divorce, each spouse retains a lawyer trained in the collaborative process. At the onset, the spouses and the attorneys agree in writing to not go to court. They will meet to openly discuss the needs and desired outcomes of each spouse. The meeting is also a time to put everything out on the table and disclose essential information like assets and income.

What separates the collaborative process from litigation is the opportunity for spouses to work together and brainstorm options. By candidly weighing the options, the parties are able to agree to a solution that may not have been available if the divorce was litigated.
