The Illinois Collaborative Process Act: A Positive Alternative to Litigation for Family Disputes

According to Margaret Bennett, an Illinois Family Law Attorney and drafter of family law legislation, “The passage of the Illinois Collaborative Process Act is the final phase of the complete overhaul of Illinois family law statutes. The Illinois Collaborative Process Act follows the rewrite of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, the Parentage Act of 2015 and the new income shares child support legislation. Illinois is now one of the leaders in child centric and family focused legislation.”
