When getting divorced, many people look for an alternative to the court processes, where their interests are protected but relationships are less strained. Collaborative divorce is an innovative approach in which a party and his/her spouse commit themselves to achieving a negotiated outcome based on full and fair disclosure of information. As part of the collaborative process, the parties agree that no litigation will be commenced during the negotiations.
Meeting all together, both parties are able to makes decisions, at times with the assistance of other necessary neutral professionals like financial planners, child-focused therapists and mediators. The most important element of collaborative divorce is that you and your attorney are committed to dealing with and resolving conflict in a conciliatory fashion.
