The Collaborative process is one of the four ways to get divorced. The Collaborative Process allows families to work with professionals to create their own agreements -about their money and their children—without fighting in court.

The Collaborative movement started in the Minneapolis metropolitan area, and has spread throughout the rest of the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. In the Collaborative process, attorneys, their clients and neutral professionals work together in non-adversarial ways to resolve the couple’s financial and parenting issues, usually in the context of divorce.
