Collaborative Divorce: A Non-Adversarial Approach To Divorce
Collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial approach to divorce, and is a unique, peaceful way to crafting a better future for you and your family in the midst of a difficult time. A traditional divorce is often adversarial, overwhelming, intimidating and confusing. But there is another way to deal with divorce, through the collaborative divorce model.
In collaborative divorce, the parties, with the support of two collaborative attorneys, a divorce coach and a financial neutral, take the time necessary to address the issues unique to their case and create a lasting divorce settlement without court intervention. Parties will avoid battling experts (and each other), as well as avoid duplicate costs by working together to obtain the necessary information in order to make informed, wise, decisions.
The goal of collaborative divorce is to help guide you and your spouse through the division of assets/debts, parenting plan for children and any future financial arrangements that must be made. The setting is safe and structured. Transparency and integrity are key components to the process and professionalism by all team members is paramount.
If you and your spouse are tired of fighting and are focused on the best possible solutions for you and your children, and are able to work together to make the decisions necessary for your family, collaborative divorce might be the best option for you.
Going through a divorce without fighting might seem like a unicorn situation. But in my 30 years of practicing family law, I have seen the good that comes from families working together through collaborative divorce. During the most difficult time in their lives, couples were able to preserve their futures and come out on the other side, better for it.
Divorce is painful and emotions often run very high, but there is a way through it without damaging your parenting and parent/child relationships. Collaborative divorce gives you the confidence you need to co-parent and make lasting decisions for your family. After all, you know your family better than anyone else, and having the confidence to make these decisions through the guidance of an experienced team, is key.
