Understanding the benefits of collaborative law divorce

Collaborative law is an alternative to the traditional divorce process which can involve contentious and costly court disputes. Unfortunately, the understandable emotions that surround the divorce process can lead to acrimonious disputes that result in a process that may cost a divorcing couple time and money and make amicable solutions to divorce-related concerns challenging.

As the name suggests, the collaborative law process allows the divorcing couple to collaborate with each other as well as legal professionals, financial professionals and mental health professionals to solve divorce-related concerns in a more amicable manner than the traditional divorce process may provide. The collaborative law process focuses on reaching shared solutions to the concerns divorcing couples commonly have related to property division, child custody and child support.

The collaborative law process encourages couples, as the divorce process always does, to reach shared resolutions and identify shared goals for the process. The collaborative divorce process can save divorcing couples time and money and allow them to focus on divorce outcomes that are best for them and their family rather than imposed by the family law court. The process requires open disclosure and a willingness to work together. If the divorce case proceeds to court, the representatives for the couple must withdraw according to the collaborative divorce agreement.

In addition to saving time, money and acrimony, the collaborative law process is a private process and may also benefit divorcing couples and families in that way. It is important for divorcing couples to understand that different options may be available to them and have trained guidance to help them decide what is best for them when considering divorce.
