Collaborative Divorce Benefits
March 15, 2023
Collaborative Divorce is the process in which both spouses work together with a team of professionals to establish the terms of their divorce settlement, completely outside of the court system. By supporting you and your spouse in a collaborative space, you and your spouse work in a more cooperative, and less adversarial manner and can often achieve a resolution faster and for less cost.
A collaborative divorce is completely different from a traditional divorce. In a 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.
For many Overland Park, KS, residents, collaborative divorce is gaining popularity as an alternative dispute resolution process, especially in families with children. Dragging your personal issues and family matters through the court is humiliating, mentally and physically exhausting, and incredibly expensive. With a skilled, compassionate, and experienced collaborative attorney to guide you, chances are good that you and your spouse will be able to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement.
The cost of divorce extends beyond just the financial aspects, and includes the emotional cost and time lost that every divorce process naturally produces. Making important decisions for your family’s future can take time to sort out and should not be rushed in order to save money. In this instance, the best thing to do is to take your time and make sure that you and your spouse are comfortable with the decisions surrounding your family’s future so you all can be at peace with the outcome.
