Your Lawyer in an Illinois Collaborative Divorce

What is the Role of the Lawyer in a Collaborative Divorce in Illinois?
Does my lawyer represent me in court?
How do I work with my attorney? How do the attorneys work with each other?

In “Collaborative Divorce: The Revolutionary New Way to Restructure Your Family, Resolve Legal Issues and Move on with Your Life”, Pauline Tesler and Peggy Thompsen put it this way:

  • Remember, your collaborative lawyer spends 100% of his or her time, energy and creativity helping you get to a settlement. ….
  • Take the time to find the best collaborative lawyer you can locate, and encourage your spouse to do the same. The best collaborative lawyers, in our experience, encourage their clients to take the long view and to work toward solutions that will work fifteen to twenty years later.
