What is collaborative divorce? This is a term that you may have heard about in relation to your divorce. A collaborative approach essentially means that each spouse and his or her attorney agree in advance not to resort to litigation in the divorce. If either party decides to go to court, both parties' attorneys must end their representation at that point. Collaborative Law is not limited exclusively to divorce but has met with much success in this particular field of law.
