Despite its name, Collaborative Law does not mean that the parties are amicable or working together. Quite the contrary; in some areas, there may be strong disagreement. Collaborative Law simply gives couples the option of working through their attorneys to forge their own agreements, outside of court.
This approach removes judges, court mandates, crowded dockets, court costs, court schedules, and crowded courtrooms from the equation. Even when parties are in severe disagreement, the removal of these factors can help nurture a more productive atmosphere. That may be one reason why the vast majority of Collaborative Law cases reach a settlement without going to court.
