Collaborative practice is a voluntary dispute resolution process in which the parties settle their dispute without litigation. In a family law case, the process involves an attorney for each half of a divorcing couple, along with a financial expert and counselor. Both of the divorcing parties agree to resolve their divorce and subsequent family matters without going to court.
The IACP Forum draws practitioners from all across the U.S. and overseas.
