What Are The Rules Of Collaborative Divorce?
The strength of collaborative divorce is that there is only one rule, and that is that the spouses will not resort to a court battle.
Instead, each spouse chooses their own collaboratively trained divorce attorney.
Each attorney will sign a disqualification clause that provides that they cannot represent either spouse in a contested court action.
Next, the collaboratively trained attorneys will help the spouses to create a team of professionals that will help them to make the best decisions possible during their divorce process.
Depending upon the needs of the family, the team can include a licensed marriage and family counselor, a CPA as a financial specialist, and a licensed child specialist to bring in the voice of the minor children and to help create a custom parenting plan.
The strength of the Collaborative Divorce process is not that we help families resolve their divorce outside of court (many processes can accomplish that claim), our strength is that we are better suited to help families reach educated, peaceful and lasting solutions.
By prioritizing the benefits of a professional team, effective communication and cooperation, we provide a path toward a more positive post-divorce future.
