Collaborative Family Law
Collaborative Law Process
The collaborative family law process helps couples get through the divorce process without going to court. The collaborative law process is for couples who want to end their marriage respectfully and can discuss the issues of the divorce collaboratively and come to agreements together.
A goal throughout the collaborative family law process is that of mutual respect, preservation of dignity and resolution without going to court. If both parties can discuss and agree on family law issues, avoiding going to court can help significantly reduce the pain, trauma and expense of a divorce on families,.
In the collaborative law process each spouse is represented by their own specially trained attorney for the collaborative process. Having an experienced family law lawyer on your side is crucial to make sure that all the necessary issues get addressed, and necessary information is obtained.
During the collaborative law process everyone sits together to identify, discuss and address to resolve the issues of divorce. It is very structured and focuses on progressing through the issues of divorce, and always moving forward. All the final decisions will be made and agreed upon by you and your spouse. Everyone involved is motivated to continue working toward mutually agreeable resolutions.
