First Steps in the Collaborative Process
What is the First Step in the Collaborative Law Process?
It takes two willing participants to effectively use the Collaborative Law process. Since Collaborative Law is a relatively new process, your spouse may be reluctant to agree without proper education regarding the benefits of the process.
1. Print off the information regarding Collaborative Law from this web site including the Collaborative Law Agreement.
2. Schedule a meeting with your spouse to discuss Collaborative Family Law and share the printed information. If you are currently unable to meet with your spouse to discuss the matter, present the proposal to use Collaborative Law in written form.
3. Review and choose from the list of dedicated Collaborative Law Attorneys practicing law in your area from the Divorce Source Professional Directory.
4. Meet with your selected attorney to discuss your case and the details of the process.
5. Most Collaborative Law divorces begin with a meeting between counsel and parties to sign a joint collaborative agreement.
