4 tips for having a successful collaborative divorce

Your divorce does not need to waste your time and money. When you choose to get a collaborative divorce, not only can you save some cash and get through the process more quickly, but you will deal with less stress. However, divorcing collaboratively requires some work and determination if you want it to be successful.

If you are about to get a collaborative divorce, here are some tips to help you get through the process.

1. Make use of your team

During your collaborative divorce, you will get help from a variety of professionals, including:

  • Financial advisors
  • Accountants
  • Therapists
  • Child specialists

This team will be invaluable to you throughout the course of your marriage dissolution. Make sure you utilize each member of your team to find effective solutions.

2. Do not try to win

The point of a collaborative divorce is to let everyone win by avoiding expensive and lengthy litigation. Whatever you do, do not attempt to make your divorce a competition. Approach your negotiations with the outlook of finding amicable solutions rather than coming out on top. Get ready for in-depth discussions with some compromises to reach agreements.

3. Listen–a lot

Your instinct will be to focus on your own point of view and arguments. While you should be able to tell your side of the story, it is important to hear what your soon-to-be former spouse is arguing too. Make an effort to listen to your spouse. This is how you will come to agreements that work for both sides. 

4. Commit to the process

In order for your collaborative divorce to be successful, you will need to trust the process. You need to hold true to the belief that it is better than litigation. When you take contentious court battles out of consideration, you will be more open to thoughtful negotiations and mutually beneficial resolutions. 

Follow these four tips and your collaborative divorce will be much easier than you expect!
