good candidates for collaborative divorce

Many divorcing spouses would benefit from the collaborative divorce process. However, the parties must be willing and able to communicate without the need for court intervention. For example, in cases involving a history of abuse or domestic violence, the parties may not be good candidates for collaborative divorce. In such circumstances, one or both parties may need a protective order or some other court order to protect their interests.
