If collaborative divorce seems like a plausible route, individuals may be interested in know that such proceedings may take less time and are frequently less expensive than litigation or other methods. During the collaborative process, the parties work together alongside their team of legal and other professionals to help negotiate and come to agreeable terms. By working together, individuals are often able to move forward more steadily.
