What is collaborative divorce?

Collaborative divorce, or collaborative dissolution of marriage action, is a manner in which the parties, the husband and wife, have committed at the beginning of their case, through a contract with their attorney with a trained collaborative attorney, that they are going to settle. They've decided ahead of time they're going to settle all of the issues in the case. They will be working with shared professionals, a shared psychologist, shared parental advisors, shared financial advisors, and there is a commitment to complete transparency so that their case and all of the issues can be settled between themselves without having a judge make their decisions for them.
