Collaborative divorce is a way to dissolve a marriage through a cooperative process based on mutual respect.  The collaborative process works by using a team of professionals consisting of attorneys, mental health professionals, and financial professionals. The parties and their attorneys meet and negotiate a settlement while using those professionals, as needed, to help guide them through the process and reach agreements that are best for the child. If you choose the collaborative divorce process, you are choosing to not go to court and argue your case before a judge. This process is a health way to end a divorce, but it is not always right for everyone.
