1. Collaborative Divorce Means No Courtroom
In Collaborative Divorce, you and your spouse each have your own Collaborative attorney, who will give you legal advice and support to reach an agreement out of court. Our discussions take place around a table, not across a courtroom—so agreements and details are private.
5. Collaborative Divorce Means You're in Control:
In a litigated divorce, the judge makes the final decision—and there is generally a winner and a loser. In Collaborative Divorce, you and your spouse negotiate a mutually-acceptable agreement, based in fairness to meet everyone's needs. You are both in control of the process and the final outcome.
6. Collaborative Divorce Places Children's Needs Above All Else
Divorce is difficult for children—but it doesn't have to be devastating to them or their parents' relationship with them. In Collaborative Divorce, solutions are crafted around what's best for the children—and on maintaining meaningful and lasting relationships with both parents.
