What is collaborative divorce and is right for me?

When both spouses can come to an agreement on all factors involved in a divorce, such as child custody, property division, and child support, they may opt to pursue a collaborative divorce. In this type of divorce, both parties can have a lawyer present to ensure that their rights are not violated in any way. However, the decisions come from the couple. They must decide on the major factors involved in their divorce and come up with a divorce agreement that works for them. By working together, they can avoid court interference, as well as save time and money.

If one party is not happy or won't settle on a particular area of the divorce agreement, it may be best to take the matter to court. However, working together while dissolving a marriage can be very beneficial for a family, both financially and emotionally. This process allows you much more control, preventing the court from making decisions on child custody, spousal support, and property division.

If you and your spouse are willing to seek a collaborative divorce, please do not hesitate to contact our firm. We can walk you through your options and help you decide if it is the right path for you.
