In Minnesota, Collaborative Divorce (also referred to as Collaborative Practice) the parties agree to have their case resolved without court appearances and without unnecessary conflict. In Collaborative Divorce, the parties sign a Participation Agreement at the beginning of the case that describes how the case will be handled, including rules for exchanging information and whether the parties will use neutrals (such as a CPA, actuary, psychologist or parenting consultant) during the case. Many parents find that Collaborative Divorce is the best approach when children are involved, as it tends to minimize conflict between the parties during the divorce.
Some of the primary areas of disagreement in divorce cases include division of assets and debts, spousal maintenance (alimony), child support, child custody, real estate issues, parenting time, retirement account and pension valuation, non-marital claims and business issues related to income and valuation. In some divorce cases, it is necessary to use a financial neutral, such as a CPA, Actuary, CFP, Real Estate Appraiser, or other financial expert to properly value (and/or trace) marital and non-marital assets.
