    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Yes, contrary to popular belief, collaborative law works well in situations other than parties who work well together. In a collaborative case you would have a mental health professional involved that may be able to help your husband with his anger and communication that you would not otherwise have in a standard litigation case.

    The question is whether he will agree to the collaborative process or not.

    Contact a collaborative lawyer in your area and meet with them. Perhaps they can refer another collaborative lawyer for your husband.

    Good luck.

    Answered . It may be more difficult. Collaborative law seems to work best when the two parties recognize they need to get a divorce and are willing to compromise when necessary to move on with dignity and minimum expense.
