What are the Benefits of a Collaborative Divorce?
What are the Benefits of Collaborative Family Law?
Less Expensive. After all who wants to spend all their money on lawyers.
Informal setting. The exchange of information is open, informal and honest and, as a result, less costly and time consuming.
Creativity. The process allows the participants to craft their own solutions tailored to their own needs. Too often, court solutions seem like pounding square pegs into round holes based on limited information.
Reduce Conflict. The collaborative process is empowering and informative. It often allows participants to part as friends.
No Court. Avoid court and the threat of going to court.
Protects Children. Children are often caught in the middle of the divorce process and fall unintentional victims as a result. The collaborative law process insulates children from this very real threat.
Problem Solving is Focus. Issues are approached from a problem solving perspective rather than an adversarial one. The parties are viewed as participating in the process as a team. Exchange of information is complete, informal and honest.
Attorney Incentive. Your lawyers have a financial incentive because they are "out of a job" if the process breaks down.
