Parents can work out custody details in a collaborative way

When co-parenting from separate households, it can be a real challenge to balance every party's priorities. The best interests of the child always come first. However, parents may have limitations that can affect how this goal is accomplished. Believe it or not, there is a less stressful way to work out custody details of your child's custody arrangement.

A method associated with less stress during the child custody process is what's known as collaborative family law. This way of hammering out a divorce or child custody arrangements can be less stressful when occurring within the collaborative process. In this process, both sides are counseled in negotiations by a lawyer who is trained in the collaborative process. With both parties being up-front about their needs and goals, the parties determining custody arrangements are open to a collaborative process that avoids behaviors like arguing, squabbling over assets and other typically negative behavior that can occur during custody negotiations.

For Cranberry Township parents, news of collaborative law may offer them a huge relief. If parents are both willing and able to approach the child custody process in this way, this may be a great opportunity for the family to determine what's next for everyone involved. A non-litigation clause is often signed by both parties in situations in which they believe collaborative law is best for them and their family. By signing this agreement, parties and party representation on either side agree not to engage in court proceedings when hammering out the details of a divorce or child custody.

While the collaborative law process may not be best for every family, it can be an attractive option for many when parents work out custody details. This time can be difficult enough, adding more stress to the situation is never warranted. The key is to have the consent of both parties to approach the situation in a collaborative manner. The rest of the decisions will flow from that agreement to collaborate.
