Collaborative divorce works through a series of meetings between the two attorneys and divorcing parties. Each meeting has a specific agenda, along with rules for behavior. Attorneys are trained to negotiate a divorce settlement without the use of litigation. They usually utilize mediation skills to smooth the process. Collaborative attorneys are required to resign if an amicable agreement between the parties cannot be reached and the couple chooses to go to court to settle.
