Cooperative divorce methods share a similar philosophy to collaborative divorce but differ in that they are not regulated by the Uniform Collaborative Law Act (UCLA), or stratified within a codified and defined legal process.
Cooperative divorce is similar to Collaborative divorce in that it:
- Centers on a respectful, non-adversarial negotiation process by way of four-way meetings with both parties and their representative attorneys
- Aims to minimize the time, pain, emotional and financial costs, and devastation of traditional divorce processes
- Asks both parties to work together amicably, out of court
Cooperative divorce is different from Collaborative divorce in that it:
- The model does not prohibit attorneys from going to court and litigating on their clients' behalf, should the cooperative process be unsuccessful
