You will need to find a Collaborative attorney whom you can trust to provide you with both quality legal advice and the skills needed to work towards a settlement. You can discuss with the Collaborative attorney ways of approaching your spouse (or the other party) about the Collaborative process. These include: (1) you talking about Collaborative Practice with your spouse (or the other party); (2) your attorney contacting your spouse (or the other party); or (3) your attorney discussing the Collaborative process with your spouse’s (or the other party's) attorney, if one has been retained. In the alternative, you can contact coaches or other professionals who may be involved in Collaborative Practice and discuss the process with them.
If you are interested in contacting a Collaborative professional, please see our list of Collaborative Professionals.
