The Commitment of Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative Divorce helps create better outcomes by requiring commitment at the beginning of the process.

A Collaborative Divorce is one in which the husband and the wife each retain a lawyer for settlement purposes only.

One of the reasons that the process works well is that it causes both parties to make the necessary commitment early in the process. Almost all divorce cases, (approximately 95%) settle out of court. However, too often the settlement comes after the parties are near the point of financial and emotional exhaustion, sometimes creating flawed settlements and resentment. Many people reach a point of committing to a settlement only when they are nearly out of money, or they are told by their attorneys or the judge that moving forward will not be successful. These reluctant settlements, while better than a trial, come at too great of a price and can lead to a rocky future for the family.
