Collaborative divorce is a separate process from the traditional divorce process most people think of. In collaborative divorce, both parties agree to forego litigation and commit to working out their divorce together. Each person is represented during the collaborative divorce process by his or her own attorney. The goal of collaborative divorce is to create cooperation that leads to a divorce agreement. Working together allows both parties to avoid disputes that can lead to fighting in court, which can exacerbate the stress and expense of divorce.
Our attorneys take a team approach to help ensure that you get the most out of the collaborative divorce process. We often bring in collaboratively trained mental health professionals to help facilitate the process. Our goal is to make the process as efficient as possible. We also often call in neutral financial experts to help work through financial issues. Creating settlement projections is one way to help both parties see the impact of the decisions that are being made.
One of the greatest advantages of the collaborative divorce process is the fact that decisions stay with the parties and are never ceded to a judge unless agreement cannot be reached and litigation becomes unavoidable.
