The Benefits of Collaborative Divorce

A collaborative divorce is less expensive and typically faster and less stressful on you and your children than divorce litigation.

The success of the collaborative law process is based on providing incentives to the parties to work out their differences. One incentive is an agreement between the attorneys and the parties that if the process breaks down, the lawyers in the collaborative divorce cannot represent their clients in subsequent divorce litigation.

The Collaborative Divorce process can be used to resolve:

  • Child Custody and Visitation
  • Child Support and Alimony
  • Division of Property

In addition to collaborative divorce, we can assist you with post-divorce modifications and modifying your will or estate plan to reflect the change in your family structure.

We understand that collaborative law is not for everyone. If your spouse will not be reasonable or if you are determined to draw out your divorce, the collaborative law process will not work. In that case, we can assist you in divorce litigation, as long as we did not try the collaborative divorce process first.
