In this article, our Kane County collaborative divorce lawyers explain the collaborative divorce process. A collaborative law divorce is an attempt to settle the issues involved in a divorce outside of court, without trial or litigation. In a collaborative divorce, the parties and their attorneys sign a "participation agreement," by which the parties agree to freely exchange information and negotiate in good faith and the attorneys agree to withdraw representation if litigation becomes necessary.
In this article, our Kane County cooperative divorce lawyers explain the difference between a collaborative law divorce and a cooperative divorce. A cooperative divorce is the same as a collaborative divorce except that the attorneys are not required to withdraw representation if litigation ensues. A collaborative divorce has greater incentives to avoid litigation, because the parties will have to hire new attorneys and start the process from scratch if settlement fails. This may make settlement without litigation more likely. However, a cooperative divorce will be less expensive than a collaborative divorce if settlement fails, because the parties will not have to hire new attorneys.
