No, it’s not an oxymoron. Collaborative divorce is a relatively new and better way to separate from the bonds of matrimony. When a marriage has failed, the spouses are obviously at odds with each other. Unfortunately, a traditional divorce often makes things worse.

When spouses seeking divorce in Maine have minor children, the court can order an investigation by a third party to gather information about the circumstances of the divorce, the parents and the children. This report will go to the court no later than three days before the hearing. Interested parties can request the testimony of the investigator. The couple incurs costs of all or part of the investigation if for any other reason than suspected abuse or neglect.
