Six Benefits of Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative Divorce

Control

You have control instead of the attorneys or the court having control. While you each have an attorney, you and your spouse keep the responsibility for designing your property settlement and parenting rights.

Support

You and your spouse shape your settlement cooperatively while each benefiting from attorney advocacy as well as financial and parenting expert advice. You benefit from consulting with a CPA and a therapist regarding your interests and your children’s interests.

Focus

The two of you can focus on results instead of reacting to opposing attorney maneuvers and court rules. You don’t have the threat of “going to court”. This enables you to focus on designing positive solutions that fit your family needs.

Money

You get more for your money in a collaborative divorce. The process usually costs less and is faster than litigation. Your money is focused on a solution instead of on paying attorneys to play “hide the ball”. You can reach an agreement sooner and file the papers without waiting for a court date.

Future

In a collaborative divorce, you are laying the groundwork for your redefined family. You get to go for a trial run on parenting schedules. If the first one doesn’t work for your children, you have time to try a different schedule before you make a decision. You learn how to co-parent and create a family situation in which your children can thrive.

Deal

You and your children deserve a solution that fits your family issues and needs. You negotiate the best settlement for your unique family needs. Your collaborative final divorce agreements will be more detailed than if you stood before a judge in a contested court proceeding. A judge does not love your children like you do. Keep your family decisions in your own hands.
