Traditional divorce litigation often leaves former spouses deeply in debt and painfully estranged from each other. Litigation often breeds resentment that may linger for years and poison relationships between parties and the children.
Collaborative Divorce process is based upon discussion and compromise. It encourages former husbands and wives to talk out and resolve issues with the assistance of their collaboratively trained attorneys and the other members of the “team.”
The end result of a successful Collaborative Divorce should be equitable property division, fair support orders, and the ability to successfully co-parent the children. It should also leave the parties confident that they will be able to negotiate a resolution of any issues as may arise in the future, without having to resort to litigation.
