Why Should I Choose a Collaborative Divorce?
A collaborative divorce can provide many financial benefits, both financial
and relational. Oftentimes, this type of divorce has much more of a positive
impact on children, rather than the harsh impact a heated divorce can
bring. As mentioned before, divorce can bring an onslaught of legal challenges.
There are many complex issues related to divorce, including:
When these matters are negotiated between both parties, it can result in
a much smoother process. A heated divorce can also lead to excessive legal
bills and time spent on fighting for what you want. Even after spending
extensive amounts of time and money, you may still not resolve a divorce
in the way you intended.
Having an attorney guide you and your spouse through the process ensures
that matter are kept amicable. In the end, however, you must still make
the decisions between yourself and your spouse.
How Does a Collaborative Divorce Actually Work?
Before you decide to pursue a collaborative divorce, you will need to understand
a few details about the process: First, in this type of divorce, each
party will have an attorney. The entire "team" will sign a participation
agreement stating that they will attempt to reach a settlement together.
You will also forgo the use of either lawyer if matters result in litigation.
Second, because the agreement is designed to keep you committed to resolving
issues honestly and fairly, the process will be carried out in private
sessions with attorneys and your spouse, rather than in a courtroom.
Finally, collaborative divorce isn't the right option for everyone.
You may be better suited to pursue mediation or a regular divorce. A divorce
lawyer in Mesa can assess your legal options to help you determine the
best course of action and counsel you through the process.
