Collaborative Divorce vs. Traditional Divorce

Collaborative divorce is different from a traditional divorce in many ways. The main difference is that collaborative divorce is a more amicable process that focuses on settling issues outside of court. Couples that choose to go through a collaborative divorce typically want to minimize conflict and stress during this process. The collaborative divorce process involves both spouses working with their lawyer to create an agreement that addresses all issues involved in their divorce. A collaborative divorce is not the same as a traditional divorce, and requires the legal guidance of an experienced family lawyer who is knowledgeable about collaborative law.

In a collaborative divorce, both spouses work with their lawyer to create an agreement that addresses all issues involved in their divorce. This agreement includes property and asset division, child custody and parenting time, spousal support, and other important issues. Once the agreement is finalized, it is submitted to the court for approval. If the judge finds the agreement to be fair and reasonable, he or she will approve the agreement, making it a court order. This process can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the issues involved.

Collaborative Divorce Process

Collaborative divorce is a unique process that involves the input of both spouses, as well as their family lawyer. This process allows couples to resolve their issues in a more efficient and cost-effective way. The collaborative process typically includes the following steps:

  • Couples meet with their lawyers to discuss the collaborative process and set goals for the process.
  • Couples and their lawyers create a collaborative agreement that addresses all issues involved in the divorce.
  • Couples sign the collaborative agreement, and their lawyer submits the agreement to the court for approval.

Collaborative divorce is ideal for couples who want to minimize conflict and stress during their divorce.
