Collaborative Divorce: A New Way To Resolve Disputes

Experiencing a divorce is difficult enough without having to endure a costly and drawn-out court battle with your spouse. The physical and mental stress on all those involved can take a huge toll. However, using a new approach, through a collaborative process, the parties can reach an agreement quickly and cost-effectively, without the emotional and physical stress that is often a part of divorce.

The Collaborative practice is a non-adversarial approach to a divorce. The parties and their lawyers enter into an agreement not to go to court. They agree to fully disclose all information needed and commit to truthfully respond to questions and requests for paperwork. Additional experts, in such areas as accounting and mental health, with special training in the collaborative divorce process, may be brought into the case to assist the parties in settling their differences.

Collaborative Practice helps each spouse anticipate their needs in moving forward, and include these in the discussions. When children are involved, Collaborative Divorce makes their future a number one priority. As a more respectful, dignified process, and helps families make a smoother transition to the next stage of their lives. The cooperative nature of this approach can reduce costs and helps with the emotional impact a contested divorce can have on a family.
