Collaborative Divorce Lawyer: The Goal Of Each Six-Way Meeting
As a divorce lawyer experienced in collaborative divorce, the goal of each six-way meeting is to create acceptable solutions and resolution to various aspects of the divorce to include division of assets/debts, parenting plan for children and future financial arrangements. The setting is safe and structured. Transparency and integrity are key components to the process. Professionalism by all team members is paramount.
I know that divorce is hard, and each party has their own interests and goals, but by working together through the collaborative divorce six-way meeting, you can create the best solutions for yourselves and for your family. During the collaborative six-way meeting, each spouse is represented by a collaborative divorce lawyer. At the outset of the process, each spouse signs a participation agreement and agrees to openly and honestly share all relevant information necessary to address the financial and legal issues of their case. It is good to remember that the collaborative divorce method is not an adversarial process, and each party is expected to work together and communication effectively.
All negotiations are conducted in six-way meetings including you, your collaborative divorce lawyer, your spouse, your spouse’s collaborative divorce lawyer, a divorce coach and a financial neutral. A divorce coach is brought in to help guide and direct effective communication and the financial neutral gathers all financial information including income, property value, assets, business valuation, and debts.
I know that going through the divorce process can be overwhelming, but you can get through this without fighting. This is because collaborative divorce is completely different from a traditional divorce. You’ll be able to work together and communicate your needs between yourselves, your divorce lawyers, the divorce coach and the financial neutral. Being able to work with a team gives you time to make the best decisions possible while addressing your unique issues and needs while creating a lasting divorce settlement without court intervention.
