A typical divorce relies on the court system. This approach is often times adversarial. Traditional divorces also cause emotional and financial stress on you and your spouse. A new option exists that allows you to cooperate with your spouse outside the courtroom to settle your case. It is referred to as a collaborative divorce.
A collaborative divorce involves four sets of people. You and your spouse are the primary players. You and your spouse also hire lawyers who are trained in the collaborative process. Finally, two neutral professionals are involved: a neutral mental health professional and a neutral financial professional. This collaborative divorce team attends a series of meetings that are out of court and completely confidential. Over the course of several meetings, the team explores issues and discusses solutions.
If you and your spouse are able to resolve your case, an agreement will be drafted and signed. The lawyers for you and your spouse will then go to court in an uncontested setting to have an order entered adopting your agreement.
A collaborative divorce is for anyone who wants to decide on their own how their divorce will be resolved. Most times, you and your spouse’s lives will continue to interact. This is especially true if you have kids. The collaborative divorce process allows you to end your marriage focused on the emotional and financial health of your family. The process also provides you with an opportunity to create a long term plan for the continued security of your family. No judge can ever know the complete details of your family like you and your spouse. That’s why the collaborative divorce process is so powerful.
Collaborative divorce is especially helpful if you have the following goals in their case:
