What Exactly Is Collaborative Divorce?

Unlike traditional divorce, which is tried in a courtroom before a judge, collaborative divorce is private. In a collaborative divorce, both parties commit to working together with a team of professionals outside of the courtroom to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution to their divorce. Each spouse, working with their attorneys, can devise creative solutions to property division, spousal support, visitation and other important family law issues, leading to greater satisfaction with the ultimate result.

Finding The Solutions You Need

Even the most amicable of collaborative divorces have some disagreements that are bound to appear. Collaborative divorce grants couples much more control over the outcome of the divorce, giving them the freedom to craft resolutions that work best for them and their family. Working with their attorneys, a financial expert and a mental health expert, the parties have the resources they need to support finding a beneficial resolution to the end of their marriage. This approach can also preserve the co-parenting relationship and shield children from the harsh emotional aspects of divorce, setting up the best possible scenario for the family as a whole as they shift into the next chapter of their family's journey.
