Do you and your spouse want to resolve your legal disputes without going to court? A Collaborative Divorce may be your answer. The parties work together toward a resolution rather than against each other. Each person has a lawyer and the Collaborative Team works together to resolve the disputes involved in separation and divorce.
Separation Without Litigation
- You have control of the process. You and your spouse, with guidance from your lawyers, determine how best to address the issues in dispute.
- Maintain Privacy. Court proceedings are public and the documents introduced as evidence are generally public as well. A Collaborative Divorce allows spouses to keep all that information private.
- Less Costly. A Collaborative Divorce is nearly always more affordable than litigating your disputes in court. The Collaborative approach is usually much quicker and less stressful than going to court.
- Promotes Better Relationships. After a divorce, the spouses often must continue to work together. Co-parenting is an example of that. A Collaborative Divorce helps maintain a positive working relationship, which can be impaired or destroyed by the animosity and stress of litigation.
