Collaborative Law is also referred to as collaborative practice, collaborative divorce, or
collaborative family law. It is a family law process that is intended
to provide a divorcing couple with the chance to resolve their issues
without requiring court intervention. As it is a voluntary process, the
couple will sign a contract to begin the process, which binds them to
the process and disqualifying their respective attorneys’ right
to represent either one in any future litigation involving those issues.
Many legal professionals and judges believe that Collaborative Law is
a less damaging approach to resolving divorce and custody issues then
the traditional litigation route.
Richard Trunnell has been handling divorce and custody cases since 1993,
