Collaborative Divorce is a divorce method in which clients resolve their settlement outside of court with a team of specialists around the negotiating table.
The essence of Collaborative Divorce is to provide a new way for a divorcing couple to work as a team with trained professionals to resolve disputes respectfully without going to court. The term encompasses all of the models that have been developed since Minnesota lawyer Stu Webb created the Collaborative Law model in the 1980s. This model is at the heart of all of Collaborative Divorce. Each client has the support, protection and guidance of his or her own lawyer as well as a mental health professional who is trained as a divorce coach. The clients with their lawyers and other professionals, as needed, comprise the Collaborative Law component of Collaborative Divorce.
