What are the benefits of collaborative law in a divorce?

Many people base their idea of what a divorce is like on the experiences of generations past, but divorce is constantly evolving. As more and more couples choose to divorce amicably, the collaborative approach is becoming more popular and is a viable option for many. Learn more about this process to see if it is right for you.

The basis of the collaborative approach to divorce is that you and your ex are able to discuss how to divide your assets and handle any child custody or support issues and arrive at a mutually agreeable settlement. Once this happens, your attorney can bring the agreement before a family law judge. In most cases the judge turns the agreement into a court order.

The collaborative approach offers many enticing benefits for divorcing couples, including a less adversarial process, more control over the final divorce settlement terms, and a quicker route to finalization. These divorces, when conducted successfully, can also be easier on the children. An amicable, collaborative divorce keeps communication lines open and often reduces the amount of stress and emotional turmoil all parties have to deal with.

While the collaborative approach can offer many benefits to those going through a divorce, it does not work for every situation. Talking with a family law attorney about the details of your case and what you hope to achieve is the first step toward learning more about this option and whether it is right for you. At the Law Offices of Karen Cushman, we are equipped to handle collaborative and traditional divorces as the need arises.
