What is a collaborative divorce?
In a traditional divorce, couples must resolve all their issues – whether it be child custody, spousal support, or etc. – by agreement. If the couple cannot reach an agreement, the court will decide what to do with all the matters through a legally binding decision.
In collaborative divorces, you and your spouse agree to participate in your own settlement process, assisted by trained collaborative lawyers to help guide the process and help in creating a resolution/agreement. If there cannot be an agreement reached through collaborative divorce, then both parties must find new legal representation and take the case to the courts.
Why choose collaborative divorce?
Typically a collaborative divorce works in situations where there is not a lot of tension between you and your spouse; when both parties know what they want and there isn’t much to be debated over. If this is not the case, consider other avenues to resolve the situation
