How is Collaborative Law Different from Mediation?
In a collaborative law divorce, each party in the divorce hires their own attorney to represent them during the “4-way meetings”, which can take place anywhere outside of the courtroom. Divorce lawyers commonly refer to collaborative law divorce as an “uncontested divorce”.
Mediation is different from collaborative law. Unlike collaborative law, mediation requires the mediator to remain “neutral” while couples work out the terms of their divorce settlement on their own. A mediator is not allowed to give legal advice or take sides. Mediators also aren’t allowed to draft legal documents, whereas collaborative law attorneys can negotiate the terms of a divorce settlement on behalf of their client.
