Collaborative Divorce Practice Series – Part 1: How to Divorce Without Going to Court


The end of a marriage or relationship is challenging enough and leaves many couples fearful of long, drawn-out court battles and endless attorneys fees. But there is a better way. Collaborative Divorce is a practice that puts you in control of your legal process with the support you need to transition into a new phase of your life – all without going to court.

The Difference Between Collaborative Practice and Conventional Divorce

The key difference between Collaborative Practice and conventional divorce is the pledge to reach an agreement without going to court. In the traditional divorce model, you and your spouse may come to see each other as adversaries and the divorce is a battleground. Whereas in the collaborative process, you and your spouse consent in writing to be part of a team that works together to reach an out-of-court resolution. In other words, you make the decisions yourselves, rather than give that responsibility to a judge.

With Collaborative Practice, the goal is to develop effective relationships, solve problems jointly and prevent a court battle.

A Team of Skilled Collaborative Divorce Professionals

Unlike traditional divorce, Collaborative Practice provides a team of skilled professionals that help you manage the many aspects of divorce. These can include the legal issues, emotional turmoil, child-related concerns, and questions relating to financial and property matters. With such support you’ll feel more in control of the divorce process itself and better equipped to begin a new life.

Collaborative Divorce: Mutual Respect and Agreement

Collaborative Practice helps prepare you to move forward with your life. Instead of being an endless airing of grievances, Collaborative Divorce encourages spouses to reach a workable settlement by building on areas of mutual agreement.
