Divorce In Your Future? Learn More About Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce redefines divorce options by offering an option for spouses to come together as partners rather than opponents. Provided by The Hill Law Firm, P.C., in Overland Park and Johnson County, Kansas, Collaborative Divorce aims to reduce conflict and protect the emotional well-being of any children involved, helping to maintain a positive family perception throughout the process.

If you believe there’s a better approach to divorce than the traditional adversarial model, collaborative divorce might be the solution for you. The initial step for anyone considering this method is to consult a lawyer to ensure a good fit for their family’s needs. Elizabeth Hill provides a free 30-minute virtual consultation to explore your divorce options, including whether collaborative divorce suits your circumstances. If you choose this path, you and your spouse will each engage a collaborative attorney and assemble a professional team, typically including a divorce coach and a financial neutral. This team begins its work by signing a participation agreement where both parties pledge to share information openly and engage constructively in what are known as six-way meetings.

These meetings bring together both spouses, their individual attorneys, a financial advisor, and a divorce coach. The goal is to collaboratively decide on asset and debt division, parenting arrangements, and future financial planning in a secure, structured, and confidential setting. With transparency and integrity at the forefront and backed by Elizabeth’s 35 years of experience, these discussions promote cooperative and sustainable solutions.

In this supportive environment, each spouse’s attorney advocates for their client’s interests, enabling more innovative and enduring outcomes than might be achieved in court.
