Mediated Divorce vs. a Collaborative Divorce

This is when a third party, such as an attorney who is a mediator can help both soon to be ex-spouses go through their problems and find solutions to each issue. Our firm can provide mediation sessions, but ultimately you need to know what you want before scheduling these.  This is more of a conversation between spouses.  Both spouses find agreeable terms regarding assets, children and other issues.  When issues are resolved the attorney or mediator puts them into legal action by having paperwork drawn up and signed, and files them to the court.  Once approved by the court, it is final.

In a collaborative divorce there are unsettled issues with your spouse.  You want to resolve these issues with without the law involved.  This is when you can file for a legal separation. You will later file a petition for divorce.
