Everyone has heard stories about nasty divorces. Ex-spouses remember the nasty things their ex said about them in court. Far too much money is lost in the adversarial process. People recount their experiences with a shudder.
The collaborative process takes the nightmare out of divorce. Spouses learn to communicate with each other instead of becoming bitter enemies. They can get through birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings and the joy of grandchildren without the rancor of a bitter divorce to haunt them.
The benefits of a collaborative divorce …
Spouses learn how to work together and communicate during and after the divorce. This benefits themselves and their children.
Spouses and children will have reduced anxiety because the hostility of an adversarial divorce is missing.
Your divorce will probably cost less when it is a collaborative divorce. Just the use of one neutral financial professional will save you money because in an adversarial divorce, you and your spouse will each hire your own experts.
Your collaborative divorce process can be much quicker than an adversarial method. You will progress at the speed you desire, not at the mercy of the court’s calendar and deadlines. This results in saving time and money.
Since everyone is working together toward a mutually acceptable settlement, you and your attorneys are in control of the divorce process. The lawyers support each other while advocating for their clients.
Without court hearings and pleadings, you get to keep your privacy. Collaborative divorce is a confidential process.
