2. The divorcing couple, with their collaborative professionals, meet to sign a Collaborative Law Participation Agreement. With their mutual endorsement of a “no-courtroom” settlement, the divorce process is “fast-tracked” toward a settlement. Spouses agree to communicate fully and frankly, to participate with integrity, and to negotiate in good faith. They are advised in the use of experts and other consultants to present their individual viewpoints. They are instructed in the limitations and confidentiality of the process, their rights and obligations during the pending settlement, and the legal enforceability of the final settlement. They are informed of reasons why either spouse or attorney can be disqualified and made to withdraw from the process, thereby terminating the agreement.
