Collaborative divorce is a voluntary process where two parties agree to resolve their issues in a cooperative manner and avoid court proceedings, with the help of their lawyers. Spouses must be willing to be open about the issues, and provide full disclosure to the other. Relying on good faith and full truthful information the settlement will be negotiated without court involvement. Walking into a collaborative divorce, both spouses and their lawyers must agree in advance that should cooperative negotiations fail, neither party may advance their position in court - creating an environment dedicated to settlement and negotiation.
