The issues that arise in divorce proceedings are some of the most contentious and emotional in all of law.
Many divorces become court battles involving angry spouses and unnecessarily aggressive attorneys. In response, a new kind of divorce has been gaining in popularity. Known as collaborative divorce, it focuses on settlement and negotiation instead of litigation.
Although the parties are represented by lawyers, all of the participants agree to work together respectfully, honestly and in good faith to find solutions that meet the legitimate needs of both parties.

In a collaborative divorce, the parties and their divorce attorneys sign agreements stating that each person will work together. If either party chooses to litigate or if a final agreement cannot be reached, the attorneys must resign from the case (therefore, not benefiting from advocating to go to trial).
In addition to the dissolution of the marriage, other issues can be handled through the collaborative process such as:
Child custody (time share)
