1. AVOID LONG, DIFFICULT, AND OFTEN EXPENSIVE COURT BATTLES
It is no secret that litigation costs can be exorbitant, especially in the most contentious court cases. Consider using collaborative law to handle your divorce and save yourself the financial costs involved in long, difficult court battles.
2. FOCUS ON PROBLEM-SOLVING AND FINDING A RESPECTFUL RESOLUTION
Litigation is combative with the goal of someone winning and the other losing. The reality of a litigated divorce is no one truly wins. In a Collaborative Divorce, the attorneys work with the family to help them find solutions to move on successfully with their lives.
3. PROTECT THE WELL-BEING AND NEEDS OF YOUR CHILDREN
Children are often ignored in litigation, but a Collaborative Divorce allows for the involvement of child specialists to support children experiencing difficulties as a result of their parent's divorce.
4. MAINTAIN DECISION-MAKING WITH YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE OR PARTNER
Who knows your family like you do? Certainly not a third-party judge using statutes written by third-party lawmakers. In a Collaborative Divorce, you and your spouse/partner maintain control over the decisions regarding your family.
5. RECEIVE THE SUPPORT AND INFORMATION YOU NEED FROM YOUR SPECIALLY TRAINED TEAM OF COLLABORATIVE PROFESSIONALS
Having a team of professionals such as financial experts, child specialists, and mental health experts guide you during one of life’s most challenging periods should help alleviate the emotional turmoil involved in your divorce.
6. PRESERVE YOUR DIGNITY AND YOUR PRIVACY
Why go through the trauma of a public trial? A collaborative divorce is confidential. All communications and meetings are confidential.
7. REDUCE THE STRESS AND EMOTIONAL TRAUMA ON YOUR FAMILY
There is no easy way to deal with divorce, but Collaborate Law goes a long way in addressing the emotional, financial, and legal needs of the family.
