Mediation is a type of alternate dispute resolution that can help couples avoid contentious litigation. It allows the parties to have more control over the process, allowing for creative and customized solutions tailored to their unique needs.

Collaborative divorce is a hands-on approach that has gained popularity in recent years. The first step is finding an attorney who is trained/experienced with collaborative divorces. Each party must be represented by a collaborative law attorney. The parties will first meet separately with their attorney to gather and discuss pertinent background information. If the couple agrees to enter the collaborative process, then the parties will work with one another to assemble the collaborative team.
Once a party decides to take the case to court, the collaborative process is terminated. The critical component of a collaborative contract is the requirement that each side will hire a new attorney to represent them going to court in the matter.
