The Collaborative Approach To Divorce

Are you looking for an alternative to the traditional divorce process? Collaborative law is the means that an increasing number of divorcing couples are using to settle their divorce out of court.

What Is Collaborative Law?

In collaborative law, each party is represented by a lawyer. These parties then negotiate the divorce settlement, agreeing to all issues out of court. A neutral mediator will help the parties overcome initial disagreements regarding important aspects of the divorce. While the exact length may vary, many collaborative divorces can be accomplished in one to four mediated sessions lasting a couple of hours each. The final agreement is then presented to the family court, and the divorce is final.

Sound easy?

It can be a more painless process than a traditional divorce. However, it requires both parties to the divorce to act in good faith to resolve potential areas of dispute. It also requires an ability to meet face-to-face and to be able to negotiate fairly. This is not the case in all divorces, of course. Many couples simply cannot agree on important aspects involved in the dissolution of a marriage. Divorce is a significant, complicated and life-altering legal process. At times, disagreement is unavoidable.

However, particularly for divorcing couples who will see each other after the divorce for children or other reasons, a collaborative divorce may make the most sense. If collaborative divorce cannot resolve all issues, then litigation is still an option.
