Collaborative Divorce is a confidential, respectful, alternative method for getting divorced. You avoid litigation in the courts by working creatively and collaboratively to resolve your family issues.
YOU are in control and YOU decide what is best for you and your family!
Collaborative divorce practice is a client-centered divorce process that provides you the opportunity to craft your own settlement that meets the needs of your family.
Is a Collaborative Divorce the right alternative for me?
It may be the best alternative for you if:
- You want to remain in control over the divorce process and the outcome
- You are willing to work creatively and collaboratively to solve problems
- You desire to have your personal and financial information remain confidential
- You desire to prioritize the children’s needs
How does it work?
After you and your spouse decide you would like to divorce using the collaborative divorce process, you both will choose the best collaborative divorce lawyers you can find.
Together with your attorneys, you will then choose one neutral mental health professional and one neutral financial professional, who have also been trained in the collaborative divorce practice.
Through a series of meetings, the team, which includes you, your collaborative divorce attorney, your spouse, and the other professionals, will problem-solve together to create a comprehensive written agreement. During these meetings, information is shared openly.
This open, non-adversarial communication style will assist your team in developing a clear picture of the expectations and goals of you and your family.
How will this alternative divorce process benefit my future?
The collaborative divorce process requires you and your spouse to communicate respectfully. It can be a life-changing experience because you will learn strategies and techniques to be a better communicator in the midst of a future conflict.
Participating in a collaborative divorce can help you resolve future conflicts in a more productive and respectful manner. You and your spouse are likely to complete your divorce with a feeling of wholeness when compared to the traditional litigation divorce process.
Traditional divorce litigation has a significant potential to tear families apart and demolish the self esteem of parents and children. Successfully completing a collaborative divorce builds a foundation for families to successfully continue into the future.
As we know, families do continue even after a divorce, when there are children or strong, relational ties between members of each family.
