Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce is an alternative to the traditional divorce process that is less adversarial and sometimes more cost effective. Collaborative divorce can work if both spouses are committed to compromise and reaching an agreeable resolution to their issues.

 

Collaborative divorce has several advantages over the traditional process:

 

  • It gives control of the process and outcome to the spouses involved.
  • It protects the future relationship of the spouses as co-parents.
  • It protects the children from harmful, nasty litigation.
  • It avoids lengthy, drawn out court battles and high legal fees.

 

 

During a collaborative divorce, each spouse works with his or her own divorce attorney and, in a series of group sessions, comes to an agreement on all issues including custody, visitation, child support, spousal support and division of the marital estate. Divorcing couples can get creative and customize solutions that work for them and their families.
