What Does A Collaborative Divorce Attorney Do?
June 23, 2021
As a collaborative divorce attorney, it is my job to help support and guide you through the collaborative divorce process, and to help assist you in identifying your own interests and goals through the divorce. It is not my job to attack your spouse or to engage in any adversarial tactics. The goal of collaborative divorce is to work together to create lasting solutions for your family’s future.
Collaborative divorce utilizes a non-adversarial approach, which actually empowers couples to come together without the Court’s involvement, to establish workable outcomes for the specific needs of their family. No two families are alike, just like no two families’ needs are alike. As a collaborative divorce attorney, my job is to assist you in identifying the areas that need resolution through the divorce process, and to empower you and your spouse to make the process your own.
I will help identify all options available to you and your spouse so that you can make the best decisions possible for your family. What works for one family does not work for another, and sometimes creative solutions are necessary to benefit everyone involved. These solutions often present themselves through effective communication and negotiation skills.
Collaborative divorce is a team-work based alternative dispute resolution method that can help spouses understand the other’s viewpoint. As a collaborative divorce attorney, I know that compassion is critical when it comes to divorce, and that includes compassion towards each spouse. Because your family shapes your life like no other relationship, the health, well-being and success of you and your family is of the utmost importance to me.
For nearly 30 years I have supported many families through the divorce process.
