Like mediation, collaborative divorce is an alternative method to a traditional divorce in Orange County, CA. Unlike mediation, a collaborative divorce does not have a third-party mediator. Instead, couples residing in Orange County meet with their lawyers outside of court and negotiate an agreement without court supervision. As part of this, both spouses sign an agreement not to go to court.
Usually, the process begins with each spouse giving full disclosure of assets and income. Once this information is gathered, they begin negotiations in conferences and attempt to resolve issues. When agreements are reached, the couple's attorneys will draw up an agreement. If both spouses approve the agreement, their lawyers will present the agreement to a court in Orange County for approval, saving time and expense by avoiding court litigation.
