A collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial process where, prior to filing for divorce in the Court system, the Husband and the Wife each hire an attorney.
The Husband, Wife, and attorneys meet one or more times to define the issues, explore alternatives, then come to an agreement.
Assets, liabilities, alimony, custody, visitation, and child support are all topics resolved in the process.
Once the issues are resolved, the actual divorce is filed. It is a true uncontested divorce because all issues are agreed upon prior to the filing.
