Collaborative Law

Nearly every divorce has the potential to be carried out through costly, time-consuming litigation. The financial and emotional strain this can place on people can seem overwhelming at times. The collaborative process is a great alternative for people who would like to keep their case out of the court system as well as maintain control over the decisions made in divorce proceedings.

What Is Collaborative Divorce?

As the name suggests, it is collaboration between each party and his or her respective attorney. In the collaborative process, you, your soon-to-be-ex-spouse and your attorneys all agree to reach an out-of-court divorce settlement agreement. The collaborative process can help you avoid costly and time-consuming litigation. Additionally, the process places the control in your hands rather than in the hands of a judge who really does not know you or your children. In a collaborative divorce, you can reach agreements regarding the main issues in a divorce, including:

  • Child custody
  • Support
  • Property division

In a collaborative divorce, you and the other party will participate as problem solvers. We encourage our clients to approach the process with a level of amicability, as any adversarial energy could make it more difficult.

Participation in the collaborative process can be rewarding and help you shape your future. Talk to us to learn more.
