What Are The Nuts And Bolts Of Collaborative Divorce: Is It Faster And Better?

What Are The Nuts and Bolts of Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative divorce is an alternative to the traditional adversarial divorce that plays out in Court, which often times wastes a great deal of your time and money.

Collaborative divorce is an out of court solution that is based upon a private, informed, cooperative and structured environment.

The foundation of Collaborative divorce is a commitment from you and your professional team to work in a non-adversarial manner.

What this means is that you and your spouse each work with a specially trained Collaborative divorce attorney, a financial expert, and a mental health professional.  This team of professionals ensures that you and your spouse have the benefit and knowledge of legal counsel, financial information, and mental health support that you need to create a custom solution that meets the needs of your family, without fighting in court.

The inclusion of neutral professionals, such as a financial expert or child specialist, adds depth to the process.  These experts help guide you toward informed decisions regarding the most important aspects of your life, family and finances.

Is It Faster and Better?

Yes, it is faster and better.  On average, your Collaborative divorce will be finalized in 5-6 months, instead of well over a year if you choose the court litigation route.

In this process, you will attend regular meetings that are facilitated by your Collaborative divorce team.  This provides you with an out of court forum to identify and resolve all issues in your divorce in a transparent and private manner.

Utilizing a professional approach that emphasizes cooperation and problem solving over conflict, helps you and your family achieve a healthier post-divorce relationship.

We make sure that you understand:

“What does a fair settlement look like in my marriage?”

“How will this affect my spouse and I financially?”

“How will this affect our children?”

“How do we get this done?”

“What are we missing?”
