Family Law Attorney Richard J. Tholstrup

Collaborative Divorce Lawyer


Most people assume the term "Collaborative "Law" as "agreed" or low contest" divorce. This is not what collaborative law is by any means.

Collaborative Law divorce is best described as a "business divorce". The terms of the parties generally involves a large monetary estate. For example, the wife has been a stay-at-home mom and the couple wants to keep the terms of the divorce discrete.

The parties agree to the terms of a collaborative law divorce where in all experts agree upon and that the attorneys that represent each side will not represent the party if the collaborative law process breaks down.

Unlike the common misconception, the cost of a collaborative law divorce can be as high or more than that of a typical litigated divorce.

An uncontested or mediated divorce is the correct term to use if you are approaching a divorce lawyer about a low contest divorce without much in the way of community assets.
