Collaborative Law FAQs
What's Collaborative Law?

Collaborative Law is the latest trend in divorce. It's a process where both clients and both attorneys meet together in a series of four-way negotiations to achieve resolutions to matters such as finances and custody.

What make a divorce Collaborative?

The clients retain counsel who is disqualified if either party should proceed to litigation. The purpose of Collaboration is to reach resolution on your family matters without the threat of litigation.

Why should I choose Collaboration as my divorce process?

Both attorneys are committed to assist both parties in reaching a settlement. There are two attorneys working as a team to volunteer options and solutions for each aspect of your divorce. At the same time the attorneys are representing a position of protection and advocacy for their client.

Why Collaboration and not Mediation?

In mediation, the mediator is a neutral facilitator of the solutions reached by the clients. Many clients are not individually represented by counsel, nor have final review counsel. In Collaboration, your attorney at all times is working to achieve the best possible outcome for you while retaining the dignity and respect of a process that allows both parties to reach resolution in compromise and not through a court order.

What makes a good Collaborative attorney?

A good Collaborative Attorney has been professionally trained and should be a member of a professional organization such as the Collaborative Divorce Attorneys of Fairfield County and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

If the court refuses to award alimony at the final hearing, and if alimony is not included in the final judgment, neither spouse can return to court in the future and request alimony due to a change in circumstance. Many final divorce judgments in Connecticut award $1 a year in alimony because this preserves the right to revisit the alimony issue if circumstances change.
