Who hasn’t heard a midnight horror story of protracted, emotional and destructive divorce? The tangle of emotions may leave the lives of children scarred, and a couple in a spider web of financial ruin. Movies have made good use of divorce wars, like “The War of the Roses.” There is another way. People refer to this new way as Collaborative Divorce
A collaborative divorce involves an extended negotiation between the two spouses, with the aid and counsel of their respective attorneys, and, as needed, other professionals such as a financial planner, a child advocate, and a mental health professional acting as coach for each spouse. When the spouses have finalized their agreement, a filing takes place with the court and made a part of the Judgment of Dissolution. Usually, the divorce happens in a flash compared to a litigated divorce.
In a litigated divorce, the two spouses, through their respective attorneys, fight over every issue. Only in one or two brief court-ordered mediations is there any occasion for the two spouses to discuss resolution of issues. Otherwise, the spouses are not required to work out anything, and they seldom do.
Collaborative divorce enables divorcing couples, as well as couples in other family law disputes, to reach agreements and resolve their differences in a respectful and productive way; without “fighting it out” in court.
Collaborative Practice involves a team of specially trained professionals who work together with the couples to help them to find solutions that will be in the best interest of the entire family, particularly the children.
It is an excellent divorce alternative that may cost less and can preserve relationships as parties restructure their families. Every divorcing couple should consider a collaborative divorce.
