How long does collaborative divorce typically take? Does it usually require multiple sessions?
Amy Zylman Shimalla’s Answer:
The collaborative divorce process can take as long as the parties need it to take. How long depends on the issues in their case. The parties determine the frequency of meetings. If they want to schedule every week they can. If they want to take time off for family events, such as a child’s wedding, they can do that. They set the pace. Settlement in collaborative divorces may take as few as two sessions, or it may take several sessions. It depends on each case as each case is unique.
