If both you and your spouse have experienced collaborative attorneys, are committed to staying out of court, and take advantage of the other types of professionals which make sense for your situation, it is very likely you can reach a settlement which works for you. In studies done around the country, 85-90% of collaborative divorces reach settlement. We cannot and do not guarantee any particular outcome or that settlement will in fact be reached. However, because of the increased conflict and cost of traditional divorce, many couples find it worth the investment to see if a collaborative divorce process will work for them, before resorting to a more adversarial process.
