Moving from Litigation to Collaborative Divorce

If a couple is in litigation, is it too late to proceed in a collaborative divorce?

Amy Zylman Shimalla’s Answer:

No. Parties can choose to drop out of litigation and proceed in a collaborative divorce process. They must withdraw their complaint and they can do so without prejudice. It would then be refiled after they reach an agreement so the divorce can be finalized. There cannot be a divorce complaint pending while the parties are involved in the collaborative process.
