All you need to know about Collaborative Divorce.
Collaborative Divorce is a new and innovative method of settling family law disputes that seek a “win-win” solution for both parties.
Collaborative Divorce is a process whereby both parties and their counsel commit themselves to resolving their differences justly and equitably without resort, or threat of resort, to the courts. The attorneys must withdraw if the case is not settled and the parties go to trial. Therefore, the parties and the attorneys are motivated to reach a settlement without court intervention.
It has become the preferred method of family law dispute resolution in many jurisdictions. A lot of families feel that this process is more humane.
Although it is cheaper than litigation, it still has its price tag. Cost depends on how amicable the couple is and how long the process lasts. Perhaps the best part of collaborative divorce is that is focuses on smooth divorce process; it helps the couples heal. The goal is to make sure that every party is psychologically and financially healthy.
Collaborative Law relies on an atmosphere of honesty and cooperation. In addition, integrity and professionalism is channeled toward the future well-being of the family. The parties engage in informal discussions and conferences to settle all issues.
Collaborate Law requires each party and each attorney to take a reasoned position on all issues. Where such positions differ, all participants use their best efforts to create proposals that meet the fundamental needs of both parties, and, if necessary, to compromise to reach a settlement of all issues.
