Promoting Fair Solutions For Complex Matters

Collaborative divorce is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that can be used to address a range of family law concerns, including:

As with mediation, collaboration provides effective remedies to parties who want to avoid litigation's adversarial nature. If you and your estranged spouse are committed to working together throughout your divorce, collaborating on issues may be beneficial.

Providing A Structured Format To Resolve Conflict

When you engage in collaborative divorce, you will work with a group of professionals dedicated to obtaining out-of-court remedies for your dispute. Each spouse retains an attorney who attends each session. In addition, parties can hire financial planners or therapists to provide insight when necessary.

When parties participate in mediation, they rely on a neutral mediator to direct sessions. Attorneys are not required to be present in mediation sessions.

For parties seeking more structure, collaborative law provides this framework. One disadvantage of collaborative law, however, is that you and your spouse will each have to hire new attorneys if you unable to reach a settlement.
