Is collaborative law suitable for a case with very complex issues?

By Laura M. Urbik Kern

Yes. There's nothing that can't be done in collaborative law that can't be done in litigation except that in collaborative law, the parties are working to a resolution together. When you go to court, you're in an adversarial system. If you want to be adversarial, you go to court. If you want to try to work this out in the best interest of your kids and figure out how you can financially make it, then collaborative might be a better route or mediation might be a better route.
