Collaborative Divorce in Illinois

A collaborative divorce is another approach to terminating a marriage. Unlike a contested divorce, both parties are willing to work with each other and agree to move forward without going to court.

In the collaborative divorce both spouses commit to:
• A binding written pledge not to go to court
• A full and honest exchange of financial information
• A solutions-based approach
