A collaborative divorce is a process where the parties each have their own collaborative counsel and sign an agreement that the attorneys can not represent them if they enter into a litigated Divorce.

The parties also have the option to utilize other professionals as part of their "collaborative team", such as a financial professional or a divorce coach.  

In the collaborative divorce, the parties will discuss each of their interests and with the help of their team, discuss various options for the division of their marital assets, property and liabilities and division of their parental rights and responsibilities if they have minor children.  

Once the parties have reached an agreement, they will file for a Dissolution of Marriage.
