Collaborative Divorce Starts With an Agreement

Prior to beginning the Collaborative Divorce process, both sides must sign a Participation Agreement. This is a contract that states both sides will not resort to litigation, but to resolve all of the conflicts through a series of settlement conferences. If one side chooses to break this agreement, the process must start over with new lawyers. For this reason, it is important that Collaborative Divorce is chosen only when it makes sense.

The Benefits of Collaborative Divorce

There are many benefits of Collaborative Divorce, including:

  • Typically less costly than a traditional typical divorce with litigation
  • Cases are generally resolved more quickly
  • Increased privacy because a judge is not deciding the issues
  • A less confrontational process because both sides are involved in decision making

In a Collaborative Divorce, both spouses will still retain their own attorney. However, at the beginning of the process all parties agree to put everything out on the table. There is none of the secretiveness or posturing that can come with litigation. All facts are revealed so they can be worked with fairly. Through a series of settlement conferences, you will work with your spouse to reach agreements about property division, child custody and support, and other issues.  A significant benefit to the Collaborative Divorce approach is the team approach when addressing financial, accounting and child related issues.  The parties choose to have team members brought into the process, which often include a “divorce coach”, who is available to assist in issues related to child custody and parenting time, as well as dealing with emotional issues that the children and/or each spouse may be dealing with.  Financial team members may also include a CPA who can assist in accounting and financial issues regarding a business, taxes, and/or assets.
