Collaborative law is a relatively new approach which attempts to eliminate the adversarial nature of legal disputes while keeping attorneys in the picture every step of the way. The most striking features of collaborative law are that both the parties and their attorneys agree to treat the dispute as a problem solving exercise rather than an adversarial contest. And a team of professionals are on board to help, including a child specialist, financial advisor, and perhaps conflict coach. The result is less expense and a resolution created by the parties in consultation with their attorney and adviser team, rather than a judge.
