How does Collaborative Practice actually work step by step?

When you decide on a Collaborative Practice divorce, each of you hires a Collaborative Practice lawyer. Everyone agrees in writing not to go to court.

Next, you meet privately and in face-to-face talks with your lawyers. Additional experts, such as divorce coaches and child and financial specialists, may join the process or are perhaps the first professional that you see.

All meetings are intended to produce an honest exchange of information and clear understanding about needs and expectations, especially concerning the well-being of children.

Mutual problem-solving by all parties leads to the final divorce agreement.
