Collaborative divorce allows both divorcing parties to negotiate terms of their separation without going to court or threatening to go to court. This approach is considered a type of conflict resolution and helps both parties avoid expensive legal fees and the stress of going to trial to litigate your case. The terms and conditions of a collaborative divorce are usually more favorable than those of a judge-determined divorce and most couples will not feel the need to try to make modifications to their divorce decree in the future.

Collaborative divorces vary from mediated divorces and uncontested divorces. In a collaborative divorce, the coupe can work with multiple parties to reach a favorable outcome. If there is a therapist or counselor, they can work with the attorney and mediator to establish a positive divorce decree. All professionals that the couple feels necessary to be involved with the divorce can collaborate together to help them reach the best possible resolution. Some couples include accountants, specialists and divorce coaches to help them reach their favored solution. These team approaches will be like an open meeting, where everyone works in conjunction to the other and advices the couple on the best legal course of action to take in terms of division of property and other aspects of their divorce.
