Collaborative Divorce in North Carolina

In 2003, the North Carolina General Statutes were amended to include Collaborative Law Proceedings. This new statute created a legal alternative for couples facing divorce. Instead of battling in a public courtroom to resolve their marital disputes, couples could now use the private and non-adversarial collaborative law process to reach legally binding decisions about how marital claims will be settled.

In collaborative divorce, the parties, their attorneys, and any consulting financial and psychology specialists all agree that they will attempt to resolve the marital claims without resorting to court proceedings. Instead of battling in court, the parties, their attorneys, and other professionals meet in a series of structured conferences designed to reach fair settlements in a win-win atmosphere. When agreements are reached, they are recorded in a Collaborative Law Settlement Agreement prepared by the attorneys.
