The Matrimonial Strategist first presented information about the basic Collaborative Law Divorce paradigm in May 2006. The hallmark of the Collaborative Divorce is the execution of an agreement by both parties and their lawyers that a judicial resolution will not be sought regarding any issue. In fact, the collaborative participation agreement requires that the parties discharge their collaborative attorneys and retain new counsel for the litigation if the issues cannot be resolved amicably. The only participants to the agreement in the basic method are the parties and counsel.
This article explores the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Divorce method. In the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Divorce, one of the parties chooses the collaborative process after consultation with a collaborative attorney or a mental-health professional who participates in a collaborative practice group. If both husband and wife decide that the Inter-disciplinary Collaborative Divorce model would be appropriate, they choose an interdisciplinary team to assist them in settling the issues presented in their case.
