Collaborative Divorce are terms often used interchangeably. While "Collaborative
Divorce" refers to resolution of particular types of disputes (divorce and
domestic partnerships), the other terms can also apply to disputes involving
employment law, probate law, construction law, real property law, and other
civil law areas where the participants are likely to have continuing
relationships after the current conflict has been resolved.

information needed to reach an agreement. The goal is a win/win situation for
all participants.


Typically clients and professionals meet together to plan for information
gathering, make interim arrangements, and discuss issues. A team will be
assembled based on the participantsÂ’ needs and can include attorneys,
communications coaches and child specialists (both roles are filled by mental
health specialists), financial experts, and other professionals as needed.
Information gathered will be shared with the other clients and team members in
order to clarify each participantÂ’s interests and stimulate ideas for possible
solutions. All communications made during the Collaborative Process will remain
confidential and will not be used as evidence if the case later goes to
court.
