Collaborative FAQ
     
  Are there times when the collaborative process cannot work?

The collaborative process generally does not work under the following circumstances:

  • If one spouse wishes to use the divorce process to punish the other person, or “get even” for past wrongs.  Participants must go into the process with integrity and a desire for a reasonable outcome.

  • If there are significant issues that will prevent reasoned discussion—domestic violence, mental illness, or untreated impairments such as alcoholism or drug use.
