Collaborative divorce is a divorce process in which a couple and their attorneys agree to resolve issues without litigation and to cooperate with each other to reach a fair settlement.  Each spouse has a lawyer, but much of the divorce is done by cooperation between the parties.  Each party agrees to disclose all requested information that is necessary for fair negotiations.  If your divorce does not resolve through the collaborative process, your attorney will withdraw from your case, because the attorneys must agree not to be involved in litigation.
