If you and your spouse have decided to file for divorce, your head may be spinning with everything there is to consider. Choosing a lawyer is probably first on your list of things to do, and the stress of a drawn out divorce as well as expense may be one of your concerns. Collaborative Law could be a solution to both. This alternative to divorce litigation allows you and your spouse to be a part of the negotiation process, and increases the likelihood that everyone involved will be satisfied with the outcome.
If you choose Collaborative Law for your divorce, skilled and experienced professionals will facilitate the resolution of differences, and work to reach a settlement that is fair for everyone.
How does it work?
At the beginning of the process both you and your spouse will agree to conduct the resolution of disputes outside of court, provide your team of professionals with all financial information, work to find a solution that is fair for all parties, and be respectful of each other during the process.
As you move through your divorce, both parties will have an attorney representing them who will act as an advocate. In addition, your team will consist of financial professionals and psychological counselors who will guide you through decisions and negotiations.
The key to a successful divorce through Collaborative Law is entering the process with a “win-win” attitude, not “win-lose”. Cost will vary depending on the case, but one thing is for sure; this is a cost-effective way to approach divorce, and every cent will go towards achieving peace, not waging war.
