Collaborative law is an innovative approach to
resolving disputes. It is currently emphasized in
resolving family issues, such as divorce and child custody.
Collaborative law is a form of dispute resolution which removes
the "win at all costs" approach from divorce.
In this process, parties and their attorneys
contractually agree at the outset to settle their disputes
without going to court. Spouses avoid the lengthy and
costly discovery and trial process by agreeing to disclose and
exchange all information required to make sensible and fair
decisions. Each spouse participates in the making of the
final agreement and signs to acknowledge his/her agreement when
it's complete. The result is a less emotionally
destructive, often less costly, and more dignified divorce for
