Collaborative Divorce vs. Traditional Divorce

As its name suggests, a collaborative divorce requires the divorcing spouses to collaborate and work together to settle outside of court. Unlike with a traditional divorce—where each spouse’s primary objective is to “win” and advance his or her own interests—the goal of a collaborative divorce is to reach a mutually agreeable settlement.

Rather than arguing before a judge, the spouses and their attorneys meet with a neutral facilitator and a neutral financial professional in a non-courtroom setting. In some cases, additional professionals will be brought in as well (for example, a guardian ad litem or child specialist if the spouses share children). Avoiding the need for litigation can lead to a quicker resolution and save money on attorney fees, expert witness fees, and more.

In a traditional divorce, the spouses will typically be represented by the same attorneys throughout all of the proceedings. With a collaborative divorce, however, each spouse will need to hire a new attorney for trial if they’re not able to reach an agreement. If that happens, anything that was discussed during the collaborative divorce proceedings will remain private.
