Illinois Collaborative Divorce Gains Traction

I recently trained in Collaborative Divorce. I recommend it as an approach to resolving divorce cases without expensive heavy litigation. Essentially, collaborative law is a new approach to resolving divorce cases with a team or family approach, where the attorneys work with clients to negotiate a settlement up front, rather than at the conclusion of a case after thousands of dollars are spent on litigation. Obviously, this may not be suitable for all cases, but it can be a useful method for resolving a divorce efficiently. For more information, the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois webpage is a great source. If you are interested in collaborative divorce, mediation, or alternative dispute resolution, please call 630.434.0400 Ext. 165, or email.
