What happens if a couple doesn’t reach a settlement during the collaborative process?

Statistically, approximately 88% of all cases that start off in collaboration are resolved through collaboration. If you’re looking at the 12% that perhaps transition to litigation, that’s what happens when the collaborative process reaches an impasse that can’t be otherwise resolved. One or both of the attorneys would submit a notice of termination of the collaborative model and then the parties are able to proceed to litigation.
