When Gov. Christie signed the New Jersey Family Collaborative Law Act in 2014, New Jersey legitimized a practice that can be faster and less costly than traditional divorce.  Collaborative divorce allows the individuals to maintain control of the divorce process and outcome.
Collaborative divorce often involves a team of experts that can include financial advisors, mortgage advisors, accountants and child experts, as needed.

Divorces are as varied and complex as the individuals involved; temperaments, family and financial obligations, and the disposition of assets can combine to create overwhelming stress, fear and anxiety. Too often, the trauma created in certain divorces is accepted as the inevitable “norm” for ending a marriage. It does not have to be this way. Non-adversarial in nature, the goal of collaborative law is to minimize the conflict that is prevalent in so many traditional divorces. Instead of conflict, the collaboratively trained interdisciplinary team uses cooperation and communication to achieve a mutually satisfactory agreement. Instead of competing attorneys controlling the process, the divorcing couple determines both the process and the outcome. This collaborative approach has also proven to help children avoid the long-term financial and emotional costs of a bitter, divisive traditional divorce.
