Find and experienced collaborative attorney and schedule an initial consultation.

Most collaborative attorneys are veteran divorce lawyers who have chosen to practice collaboratively because they believe in the process. The International Academy of Collaborative Professionals maintains a website with listings of accredited collaborative divorce professionals by state. Make sure to ask how many Collaborative cases the attorney has completed and how long the attorney has been practicing collaboratively. Ask about the attorney's training in Collaborative Divorce and the extent of her continuing education. Find out if the attorney actively participates in professional Collaborative Law organizations. Ask for references from past clients.
