Collaborative Divorce & The Goal Of Each Six-Way Meeting
April 13, 2022
Collaborative divorce at The Hill Law Firm, P.C., is a different approach to solving all of the issues in a divorce, in a peaceful, productive way. The collaborative method relies on a six-way meeting to guide couples into making the best possible solutions for their family.
The participants in a six-way meeting are each party with his or her collaborative divorce attorney, the divorce coach and the financial neutral. The goal of each six-way meeting in collaborative divorce 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.
You will not be able to solve every issue of your divorce in one six-way meeting, however, each meeting should bring you significantly closer to reaching a divorce resolution that meets the wants and needs of you, your spouse, and your family.
Each collaborative divorce six-way meeting is set in a safe, structured space. There are no court records involved, and your private family matters stay with you. Transparency and integrity are key components to the process and make facilitating effective communication that much easier when couples are completely open and honest.
As a divorce lawyer who routinely works with collaborative divorce couples, I know the hard work that goes into this process. I have seen couples come out from their divorce stronger, with better communication skills, and with the ability to continue to work together for the betterment of their family.
Divorce is hard, no matter what option you choose. But if you’re looking for an alternative way to end a marriage in a peaceable manner, with you, your spouse, and children’s best interests at heart and can work together, collaborative divorce might be the best option for you.
For more than 30 years, I have practiced family law and have seen the good that comes from the collaborative method. I believe compassion is critical when working with divorce couples.
