Collaborative Divorce: It provides for the attorneys for both parties to negotiate a fair settlement on behalf of their clients without court involvement and prepare the agreement for their clients to sign.
Mediation: It provides for both parties to sit down with a third person, the mediator (who could be a lawyer), to try and work out their differences and come to an agreement. The mediation process is confidential and there is no public record of what goes on in a mediation session.
Arbitration: – It requires both parties to agree on an arbitrator to hear their case (instead of a judge) and decide on the issues. Arbitration is rarely used in divorce and the decision of an arbitrator is not final until it is approved by the Court.
