Collaborative Divorce is a non-adversarial process in which each person is represented by his or her own attorney. The spouses and their collaborative attorneys pledge to negotiate in good faith in a series of four-way meetings until an agreement is reached on all the issues. The spouses and their collaborative attorneys also pledge not to go to court (except for filing a non-contested divorce at the end of a successful collaborative divorce matter.) Each spouse is under a duty to fully disclose all relevant financial information and documents, past and present. Information is transparent so both spouses know the same information when making decisions. There are no financial secrets in the collaborative process. In collaborative negotiations, the spouses promise to negotiate in good faith to reach an agreement that is acceptable to both spouses.
When both spouses are at the same table talking, communication is more efficient. In the collaborative process, the clients are at the center of the communication. The clients also control how often they meet, when they meet, and what “homework” each will do before the next meeting. The clients are not controlled by anyone else’s agenda or calendar but their own.
