Collaborative Law

Los Angeles Collaborative Law Lawyer

The process of collaborative law allows a divorcing couple together to determine the division of property and to fix support with clear expectations not to go to court in settling their divorce. Barbara Irshay Zipperman has helped clients in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, and throughout California in resolving their divorce issues through collaborative law.

The Process of Collaborative Law

Unlike the process of mediation, collaborative law requires an agreement between the parties. The document states that each spouse will deal with the other spouse honestly and will fully disclose all assets. The agreement will also state that the divorcing spouses will work through their problems with their attorneys present as opposed to taking the divorce to court. A collaborative law agreement does not preclude you from going to court. However, you will have to find new legal representation if the collaborative law process does not work.
