What Is Collaborative Law?
Collaborative law is a dispute resolution process through which an agreement is reached by courteous negotiation and mutual compromise between the parties. Throughout the collaborative process, the parties and their attorneys, and any other professionals involved in the case, agree to resolve all issues of their family law case together without any controversial and argumentative court proceedings. The decisions made and agreements created are designed to be workable and realistic for the entire family.
Collaborative law may be a great option for spouses who wish to keep their relationship cordial and friendly, especially for those who have children. When children see parents working together, even though they may be divorcing, it can minimize the stress and impact that the process has on the children. Throughout the case, the spouses can work together to see that the best interests of the children are kept at the forefront of the case.
Also, collaborative law may be a way to keep costs down and move the case forward more efficiently. With collaborative law, you control the pace of the case and do not have to deal with court-imposed resolutions.
