Divorce Attorney: Have You Heard Of Collaborative Divorce?
As a divorce attorney, I know many couples do not know there are alternative divorce options and have never heard of collaborative divorce. The very idea of divorce can be overwhelming, but collaborative divorce makes the divorce process easier.
When thinking about divorce, people automatically begin processing impending fights, intimidation, loss of control, and all the expenses involved. But divorce doesn’t have to be this way.
Collaborative divorce is completely different from a traditional divorce. Through this process, couples are given time and space to make their own decisions about their future. In the collaborative divorce process, couples, each with the support of their collaborative divorce attorney, a divorce coach and a financial neutral, take the time necessary to address the issues unique to their case in order to create a lasting divorce settlement without court intervention.
The success of collaborative divorce hinges upon honesty and transparency in sharing all relevant information necessary to address the financial and legal issues of the case. As a divorce attorney I know that transparency and integrity are key components to the process, and spouses who are able to work together amicably, come through the collaborative process, stronger.
The goal of collaborative divorce is to create acceptable solutions and resolution to the division of assets and debts, creating a parenting plan that works for all involved, and any future financial arrangements. As a collaborative divorce attorney, I know these are difficult decisions to consider. But couples who can work together to create solid solutions to these issues do really well the collaborative atmosphere.
In collaborative divorce, couples avoid battling experts and duplicate costs by working together to obtain information needed to make informed decisions. Couples are able to keep the decision-making power instead of ceding that power to a judge. After all, you know yourselves and your familial relationships better than anyone else. Why give someone else power over your future?
Collaborative divorce is an alternative dispute resolution process for divorcing couples who wish to end their marriage on amicable terms, with a strong future for their family in mind. As a divorce collaborative attorney over the past 30 years, I have seen the good that comes from the collaborative process and believe that compassion is critical during this difficult time.
