Collaborative Law Attorney Serving Naperville and Surrounding Communities

The newest alternative dispute resolution procedure in the area of family law is known as collaborative law. In the collaborative process, the parties and their counsel all sign a participation agreement in which the attorneys pledge to withdraw if a full agreement is not reached. Because of this, everyone is fully invested in achieving a favorable outcome in the collaborative process. One of the core concepts of collaborative law is the free and open exchange of information between the parties as opposed to an adversarial discovery process.

The collaborative process also focuses on the use of relevant, shared experts in all facets of the negotiation. Financial experts help identify, value, and divide assets. Certified divorce financial planners help parties fully understand what their present and future financial needs and resources are. A child specialist may also be utilized to assist the parties in serving the children's best interests.
