Collaborative Law

What Is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative law includes a broad range of strategies designed to help divorcing couples avoid costly litigation in the courtroom. Often, divorcing couples have worked out many of the less contentious issues before they hire their own attorneys. Matters such as complex property division and parenting arrangements are often too difficult to resolve at their kitchen table, putting attorneys in control of the process.

Through alternative dispute resolution strategies such as mediation and arbitration or skillful negotiations between parties, an independent collaborative law specialist can often help the parties examine their positions and come to a reasonable resolution that satisfies the court.

Alternative Dispute Resolution Keeps You In Control Of The Final Outcome

Avoid Costly And Emotional Litigation

The collaborative divorce process can often save a substantial amount of money in legal fees and court costs. A skilled specialist will have resources available to assist with questions of property classification, valuation and child welfare issues. During the collaborative process, it is advisable for both parties to seek legal counsel to advise them on how proposed resolutions will affect their future.
