Benefits of collaborative law

Collaborative law divorce is an alternative to the traditional divorce process that is commonly litigated in family law court. The process aims to help divorcing couples work together to resolve divorce-related concerns before they become disputes and without the need for litigation. Because litigation can be costly financially and emotionally and time consuming, it is beneficial when divorcing couples are able to avoid litigation.

Divorcing couples are always encouraged to reach shared agreements concerning divorce-related issues such as property division, child custody, child support and alimony. The collaborative law divorce process is focused on shared solutions and the representatives for each spouses are disqualified if the case does proceed to litigation. The collaborative law divorce process is a contractual agreement that focuses the divorcing couple on problem-solving and negotiation. It is also more private and information shared during the process is not used in court if the case goes to trial.

As part of the collaborative law divorce process, the parties share information openly. Experts can also be brought in to help, including financial experts, counseling experts and others, and experts are shared between the couple. The couple also agrees to conduct themselves in a respectful manner focused on resolutions. The collaborative law divorce process can also minimize the impact of divorce on children.

The family law process provides a variety of different resources because couples and families find themselves in different circumstances. It offers flexibility to help families through challenging times which is why couples should be familiar with the different options available, including collaborative law divorce.
