In February of 2007, the Ethics Committee of the Colorado Bar Association (CBA) issued an advisory opinion criticizing Collaborative Practice. Collaborative Practice is a form of alternative dispute resolution in which the clients and lawyers agree to work toward resolving all of the issues through facilitative negotiation, without court intervention.
To file for a divorce in Michigan, the spouse filing the complaint for divorce or the responding spouse to that complaint must be a resident of Michigan for at least 180 days before the complaint is filed. Second, at least one of the separating spouses must have resided in the county where the complaint was filed for at least 10 days before the complaint is filed. If one or both of the residency requirements are not met, then the court does not have jurisdiction to hear and decide the divorce.
