Understanding Collaborative Divorce

What can you expect during a collaborative divorce? When you work with our firm:

  • We will meet with you and your spouse to discuss the goals, needs, and concerns that are most important to your family. This may include child support and custody, division of property, spousal support, visitation, and more.
  • We will make an agreement to work out the issues you may disagree upon through negotiation or mediation. Some people threaten litigation to try to get their way in a divorce, but we will agree not to leave litigation out of the process unless it absolutely becomes necessary.
  • We will work to reach mutually beneficial agreements regarding all the terms of your divorce. We will reach a settlement agreement that works for you and your family, and one that will be approved by the court.

Why Should You Choose Collaborative Divorce?

You might be wondering why you should be convinced to try a collaborative divorce when so many other people choose to use litigation to end their marriages. The truth is you could use divorce litigation if you want, but it is our staunch belief that you will not want to once you learn about the benefits that collaborative divorce brings.

The top advantages of using collaborative divorce are:

  • Less stress: Divorcing is stressful. There are no two ways about it. But divorcing in a courtroom is certainly the most stressful way to divorce out of them all. With a collaborative divorce, you can eliminate stress by taking things out of the court, which is technically a public space. The idea of cooperation also lessens any tension you might have been feeling as you expected a legal battle.
  • More freedom: The court decides what happens at the end of your divorce if you go through with litigation. For the most part, though, collaborative divorce lets you and your spouse find creative, outside-the-box, and personally tailored solutions to issues that work best for you both and your children. You will have more freedom by being less bound to the expectations of a New York family courtroom.
  • Happier futures: All in all, people who end their marriages through a collaborative divorce tend to be happier with each other afterward. Being able to sit in the same room together without wanting to fight is a huge benefit to your own happiness, but it is also crucial if you still need to raise children together.
