Getting a divorce is one of the most challenging events in a person’s life. And all marriages and domestic partnerships have their own unique set of circumstances. As such, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to obtaining a divorce. Many do find that the collaborative process is a welcome alternative to some of the more adversarial aspects of a litigated divorce. Spouses considering the collaborative divorce model may want to consider the values of the collaborative process and whether it is important to them as well.
