When you have a collaborative divorce meeting, these sessions are the backbone of the collaborative process. The meetings consist of you, your attorney, the husband or wife, and their attorney. An agenda is prepared by the attorneys before the meeting so that you know what it is you’re going to discuss. The point of that particular session may be a discussion about child support or a discussion about how the assets are going to be divided. One of the attorneys takes notes so that they’re sure of what the parties have talked about and any decisions that are made are written down as well. There are times when homework is given out either to the attorneys or to the clients so they will be totally prepared for the following meeting. These series of meetings comprise the collaborative law process and wind up, in the end, with an agreement that you need to get a divorce.
