Should you consider a collaborative divorce?

On Behalf of | Nov 10, 2022 | Mediation & Collaborative Law |

There is no right answer regarding whether or not you should consider a collaborative divorce. However, if you and your spouse are open to trying something different – potentially more beneficial for both of you – then collaborative divorce may be the right choice. 

If you’re thinking about divorcing your spouse, here’s what you need to know about collaborative divorce.

What is a collaborative divorce?

Collaborative divorce is a process in which divorcing couples work together with their attorneys and other professionals to reach an acceptable settlement for both parties. The collaborative divorce process can help couples avoid the costly and time-consuming litigation process and provide a more amicable way to resolve the issues that arise during a divorce. 

In many cases, collaborative divorce can help preserve relationships between divorcing spouses, which can be especially important in cases involving children. 

The benefits of this approach include lower costs, less stress, and the ability to maintain a more amicable relationship after the divorce. One of the key advantages of a collaborative divorce is that it allows couples to avoid litigation costs. In addition, the collaborative process often takes less time than a traditional divorce, which can further reduce costs. 

Moreover, couples can avoid the emotional stress and turmoil that often accompanies litigation by working together to reach a settlement. Finally, the collaborative process typically leaves both parties more satisfied with the outcome than if the case had gone to trial. 

If you’re considering a divorce, ask yourself if you and your spouse are willing to cooperate and communicate effectively. A collaborative divorce might be a better option than a traditional one.
