The collaborative process might reduce stress during divorce

In last week's blog, we discussed how even an amicable divorce can be difficult. The stress of having to deal with court appearances and the thought of having someone else making choices about how your assets and debts might be more than you can deal with. There is a possible solution that can remove some of these stress-inducing situations. That option is a collaborative divorce.

A collaborative divorce lets you and your ex, along with your respective attorneys, work together to create a divorce settlement. By doing this, you take control of how the divorce settlement works. Instead of relying on a judge to determine how things will be divided, you and your ex can decide who gets specific assets.

Besides the division of assets, you can also work together on child custody matters. You and your ex can come together to determine visitation schedules for children. This allows both of you to take your schedules into account when thinking about when a child will go with each parent.

The main points that most people appreciate about a collaborative divorce are that they are usually open and honest, and it is generally faster than going through a traditional divorce. Since this process is open and honest, it is usually a lot less stressful since you are working together instead of fighting against each other.

When we work with you on a collaborative divorce, we want to come to a resolution just as much as you do. If we are unable to come to an agreement through the collaborative divorce process, you will have to find a new attorney.
