Collaborative attorneys and related professionals charge hourly rates for their services. The process is organized and efficient, with the most significant cost savings realized by avoiding the costly premise of litigation. Without court battles, there is no need for legal discovery, an expensive quest for pertinent information which often requires digging for financial records, multiple property valuations and other details that could sway a legal outcome before a judge.

Sometimes finding creative ways to reframe divorce settlements can ease tensions.


In the Collaborative Process, all such information is readily provided. Collaborative participants will not find themselves sitting in a courtroom for extended periods, waiting to argue their position before a judge to decide who is right and who is wrong.  Any points of dispute, which do arise, are dealt with directly and actively between the parties together at the conference room table.
