The Promise to Avoid Court

At the core of all collaborative divorces is the promise to settle all divorce terms outside of court, a promise made by each divorcing spouse. The termination of marriage is set to be settled civilly and cooperatively, with minimal arguments. Each party and their legal representative instead agree to non-combatively, objectively negotiate the terms of their divorce agreement. In this way, you avoid the stress of litigation, and you are not at the mercy of the courts.

Collaborative Divorce: A Comfortable Middle Ground

Collaborative divorce has been described by some as the middle ground between mediation and litigation. Whereas mediation calls for each spouse to advocate for him- or herself while receiving consultation from an attorney, collaborative divorce allows for direct representation from an attorney. And while litigation requires each party to appear before a courtroom judge, collaboration instead settles everything outside of court.

In essence, the process of collaborative divorce systematically avoids the downsides of each alternative process, and instead utilizes the most desirable aspects of each.

Each spouse is represented by their respective attorney, a legal advocate who protects their rights throughout the negotiation process. With collaboration, all divorce settlement paperwork is fully prepared and completed ahead of time, and other outside professionals, such as accountants, might be consulted. In most cases, the collaborative process serves as the perfect medium for a divorce between two spouses who wish to complete the process as amicably as possible.
