Collaboration is present in opposing goals exhibiting the notion of adversarial collaboration, though this is not a common use of the term.

Put more simply: keeping people connected, getting them the stuff they need, and sorting out what to do next. But before I can talk about that, I need to vent a little.

Independent Curators International - Events Overview. Lori Nettles Online Collaboration. Collaborative law. Collaborative law (also called collaborative practice, divorce, or family law) is a legal process enabling couples who have decided to separate or end their marriage to work with their lawyers and, on occasion, other family professionals in order to avoid the uncertain outcome of court and to achieve a settlement that best meets the specific needs of both parties and their children without the underlying threat of contested litigation.

The voluntary process is initiated when the couple signs a contract (called the "participation agreement"), binding each other to the process and disqualifying their respective lawyer's right to represent either one in any future family related litigation. The collaborative process can be used to facilitate a broad range of other family issues, including disputes between parents and the drawing up of pre and post-marital contracts.
