What Is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative divorce is a process that allows divorcing spouses to work together to determine the terms of their divorce. In a collaborative divorce, both parties and their attorneys enter into a written agreement that they will work together to resolve their divorce and will not go to court. The parties and their attorneys then engage in a series of meetings to discuss and negotiate the terms of their divorce, including property division, child custody, and spousal support. The goal of the collaborative divorce process is to reach a resolution that both parties are satisfied with, without the need for litigation.

Benefits of Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce offers a number of benefits to divorcing spouses, including:

  • Control over the process. When you choose to go through a collaborative divorce, you and your spouse are in control of the process. You get to decide how to resolve your issues, rather than a judge making the decisions for you. This can help you reach a resolution that you are both satisfied with.
  • Time and cost savings. Going to court can be time-consuming and expensive. By choosing collaborative divorce, you can avoid the time and cost of litigation and resolve your case more efficiently.
  • Confidentiality. Court proceedings are public record, which means that anyone can access them. Collaborative divorce is a private process that allows you to keep your personal matters confidential.
  • Reduced stress. Collaborative divorce is generally less adversarial than litigation, which can help reduce stress and maintain a more amicable relationship between you and your spouse.

Collaborative divorce can be a good option for couples who are willing to work together to resolve their divorce. However, it may not be the best choice for you if you and your spouse are not on good terms or if there is a history of domestic violence in your relationship. If you are considering collaborative divorce, you should consult with an experienced attorney to determine if it is the right option for you.

How Do I Get Started with Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative divorce is a voluntary process, which means that both spouses have to agree to participate. If you and your spouse are interested in collaborative divorce, you should each consult with your own attorney to discuss the process and determine if it is the right option for you. If both you and your spouse decide to proceed with collaborative divorce, your attorneys will work with you to select a team of professionals to help you through the process. This may include a financial planner, a child specialist, and a divorce coach. Your attorneys will then work with you to schedule a series of meetings to discuss and negotiate the terms of your divorce. Once you reach an agreement, your attorneys will draft the necessary documents and submit them to the court for final approval.
