The Collaborative Law model removes the court which is inherent in the traditional model, offers support and legal expertise not present in the mediation model, and fully supports the concept of both parties working towards a solution initiated by the do-it-yourself model.
No, it’s not an oxymoron. Collaborative divorce is a relatively new and better way to separate from the bonds of matrimony. When a marriage has failed, the spouses are obviously at odds with each other. Unfortunately, a traditional divorce often makes things worse.
There is a new method of resolving disputes which has recently arrived in Maine. Called Collaborative Law, it is already practiced in several states and in many other places around the world.
The easiest way to get a divorce in Maine is when the divorce is uncontested, which means that both spouses mutually agree to dissolve the marriage. An uncontested divorce is a no-fault divorce where both spouses agree that the marriage is broken due to irreconcilable differences, not the fault of any party. The procedure in Maine is straightforward and usually conducted with minimal complications, if any. Follow the directions carefully, and the whole divorce process should only take around 90 days to complete.
