What Is the Collaborative Process?

      The collaborative process is a form of alternative dispute resolution that allows family lawyers to work closely with families to help them resolve their disputes or dissolve their marriages in a confidential and amicable way. The collaborative process takes place outside of the judicial system so that families have more control over the results in their case.

      In collaborative law, each party retains his or her own family attorney. These attorneys must agree not to represent the clients if the case resorts to litigation. The collaborative process is completely voluntary.

Benefits of Collaborative Law

Many clients who have used the collaborative process report finding fair and favorable resolutions to even the most complex disputes.

A collaborative approach can be used for:

The collaborative approach is best suited for parties who are willing to work together and are open to compromise but who need help and guidance along the way. The collaborative process utilizes a certified public accountant and a mental health professional. This process of collaboration allows the professionals and the parties to have monthly meetings to go over the agenda to move the case forward amicably.

Collaborative law can be beneficial because it:

  • Saves time and money.
  • Ensures privacy.
  • Keeps decision-making power within the family and out of the hands of judges.
  • Can result in a more agreeable solution.
