Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce is similar to mediation but generally more effective because both spouses have their own attorney and there is a team environment where additional professions are added as needed.  The result is that spouses end up getting “the best bang for the buck” because they are paying for only those professionals that can help the most.  As a result, legal fees are generally lower in Collaborative Divorce that in Divorce Litigation.

The Collaborative divorce process will also help spouses identify their values, interests and goals to achieve an ultimate outcome that works for each of them.  In doing so, the Collaborative divorce team will help the spouses put together a list of powerful actions that can be taken immediately to help them achieve their goals.

Significantly, during the Collaborative divorce process, communication between spouses and their lawyers would remain confidential, as would communication between the parties and other professionals on the Collaborative divorce team.  Further, if the spouses are unable to reach an agreement and the Collaborative divorce process fails, both attorneys must withdraw and each spouse must obtain a new attorney.
