What is collaborative divorce mediation?

Couples who have decided to divorce and want to avoid the time-consuming and costly process of divorce litigation should look into collaborative divorce.

It allows the two parties and their legal representative to work out the details of their settlement without a judge making the decisions for them.  After all, a judge does not personally know their family situation.

In a collaborative divorce, both parties sign an agreement to not litigate in a court room.  They agree to work together with the help of their own attorney in order to reach a necessary agreement, which will be presented to the court later on.
