What is conscious uncoupling?

Conscious uncoupling seems to be a term that originated in Canada in 2010, so a few years before Gwyneth Paltrow made the term famous when she announced her divorce. In a legal sense, conscious uncoupling is similar to a collaborative approach to divorce where both parties of a separating couple agree to work with one another through the assistance of counsel without availing themselves of the traditional family court process.

Whatever you call it, collaborative divorce or conscious uncoupling, the focus is on the dignity of the process and the wellbeing of all involved and not expending countless dollars on legal fees.
