Collaborative Law, as its name indicates, is a form of ADR, a process that allows disputants to work with the assistance of legal counsel, as well as other trained professionals, to find the best resolution of their dispute. The collaborative process is often used in divorce proceedings, but is not limited to family law. The process aims to have attorneys act as advisors to their clients in the collaboration process and, with the possible assistance of other professional advisors, help their clients reach a resolution.
