WILL COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE WORK FOR YOU?

Posted on 03 18,2015

Spouses looking to divorce who may not need lengthy court battles to iron out the details of their divorce settlement should consider a collaborative divorce whereby some third party such as a professional mediator can come alongside the couple to resolve differing points of view on aspects of their divorce such as division of assets, custody, or support.


To pursue a collaborative divorce, spouses will each hire attorneys specially trained in collaborative divorce to advise them during a settlement negotiation. Spouses will meet individually with their attorney, and as a foursome. Other specialists such as child custody experts or third-party accountants can also be brought in all in order to reach a settlement without divorce court.

Collaborative divorce is meant to have you in court as little as possible. Actual court procedures are quick once a settlement is reached through collaboration.

Collaboration can help the divorce process by allowing you and your spouse to:

  • Exchange all necessary information voluntarily
  • Decide on how to handle post-divorce decisions
  • Stabilize the separation with a temporary agreement
  • Agree on legal procedures that minimize expenses and quicken the process
  • Ultimately negotiate a settlement that works for the two of you

You can save time and money by utilizing a collaborative process at any time during your divorce. Such a process can help maintain discretion and privacy during your divorce.
