A divorce does not have to lead to a courtroom battle filled with emotions. With collaborative divorce, divorcing couples can avoid this and work together to come to an agreement. In recent years, this type of divorce has become more common. In fact, it’s been recognized by the Illinois Collaborative Process Act which will go into effect on January 1st, 2018 and was passed to promote the use of the collaborative process to settle more cases in Illinois. Let’s take a closer look at the meaning of the Collaborative Process Act.
The Collaborative Process Act Defined
A collaborative divorce involves spouses working together with their lawyers to come to a resolution on outstanding issues that need to be settled. The Collaborative Process Act states the following:
Who Is the Collaborative Process for?
The collaborative divorce process is an appropriate option for couples who value privacy, would like to resolve their issues in a civilized and respectful way, and are willing to focus on coming to resolutions rather than blaming one another. It also makes sense for couples who will be co-parenting and wish to protect their children from the negative impacts of litigation and would like greater control over their divorce.
