Who can benefit from the collaborative divorce process?

If you and your spouse have come to the difficult decision to get a divorce, you may be wondering about how to approach the process. For many people getting a divorce, it is their first time and they aren't always sure what to expect. This is completely understandable, and because of this, some married couples aren't aware of a specific type of divorce process that could mean less stress on themselves and family members.

A method of divorce known as a less stressful way to divorce and for better communication is known as collaborative divorce. A fairly recent 'trend' on the divorce scene, the process was originally conceptualized in the 1990's and features a divorce process focused on communication and civility. The main factor defining a collaborative law divorce is a divorce in which the parties agree to commit to resolving a divorce and all related support, custody, and property disputes in a constructive and reasoned atmosphere.

Naturally, both parties could benefit from this process if they are willing to partake in the methods of collaborative divorce. Better communication can lead to less emotional destruction overall. Also, if any children are involved in the divorce their custody arrangements can be made with a true focus on their well-being if parents agree to communicate about the child custody arrangement in a collaborative law environment. Also, collaborative law also enlists the help of specialists in certain fields like accounting that can help to examine financial records to ensure for a fair and equitable asset division.

At the end of the day, a collaborative law divorce can same time, money and be less stressful for everyone involved or affected. If this sounds like something you and your spouse would be interested in, it should be a method of divorce worth investigating. If lines of communication are fairly open between spouses during this difficult time, they are often candidates for this process. If there is a lot of anger or resentment built up due to the failing relationship, collaborative law may not be the best option as it requires good communication.
