The statute recognized that the “family collaborative law process is distinct from other dispute resolution mechanisms because the parties intend to resolve their dispute without litigation.” Instead, the parties, their attorneys, and other appropriately trained non-lawyer professionals (accountants, therapists, etc.) meet to move the case toward a resolution.
The Collaborative Law approach to divorce encourages spouses to with with one other. The process is private and confidential, and geared toward helping both parties collaborate with each other, professionals, and their attorneys to obtain a practical, fair, and lasting resolution for their family.
While the Collaborative approach is not right for all families, it is a more amicable and less stressful alternative that should be considered before filing for divorce.
