Divorce Shouldn't Be a Battle
No Court - Just Solutions
Many couples unwittingly choose to litigate (go to court) because they are not given a better alternative - Collaborative Divorce. Divorce courts are courts of equity. In other words, in a litigated divorce, the judge has complete discretion to determine what, in his/her mind, is fair for your family.
In a Collaborative Divorce, the couple and their attorneys are preparing for resolution from day one in a negotiation centered process.The collaborative process recognizes that the couple, and not a judge, is best suited to make decisions that are in the best interest of their family.
Collaborative Divorce is different from a litigated divorce.
The benefits of a Collaborative Divorce include:
• Privacy – by staying out of a public courtroom, your collaborative divorce remains confidential.
• Control – you, and not a judge, decide what is fair.
• Financial Resources – from the first day your money is spent working towards settlement, not trial preparation.
• Common Sense – you and your spouse reach realistic and workable solutions allowing you both to move forward with your lives.
• Children – with a greater emphasis on the long-term emotional and financial well-being of both you and your spouse, your children are less likely to feel ‘caught between’ two loving parents.
