Collaborative Law FAQ's

What is collaborative law?

Collaborative law is an alternative to traditional divorce litigation wherein the participants desire to resolve their divorce, paternity action, modification, or any other family legal matter outside of court.

How is collaborative law different from divorce, paternity, or post judgment litigation?

Unlike in divorce, paternity, or post judgment litigation where the Parties do not control the outcome of their case and their issues are submitted to the Judge to make a decision for them, collaborative law allows the participants to control the outcome of their family legal matter. The participants must be committed to being open and honest throughout the process and work together, with the help of their attorneys and sometimes other professionals, to resolve their legal matter(s).

 

How much does the collaborative process cost?

The collaborative process is oftentimes much more cost efficient than the traditional litigation process, whether seeking a divorce, paternity action, or post judgment modification. The cost depends on the amount of time needed to resolve the legal matters and the number of professionals involved to assist in the completion of the process.
