Collaborative Law and Divorce

In a collaborative law case, husbands and wives are assistd by trained attorneys to reach a settlement with minimal animosity.  A structured and controlled setting encourages trust and objectivity in negotiating an agreement.  The process requires the parties to agree to settle at the outset.  The collaborative divorce permits the parties and the children move forward in an environment that protects their emotional wellness. 

I have been trained as collaborative lawyer.  With my past training as a mediator, I find the process of a collaborative divorce attractive.  The parties each have their own attorney providing them with guidance so that all decisions are made rationally and with the best information.  Confidentiality is easily maintained through an agreement.  A collaborative divorce will move on the parties clock and not be bound by artificial deadlines which are set by the courts.  Collaborative lawyers are tasked to be more creative in crafting settlment agreements that meet the needs of a family and not merely the interests of one party.  The parties share in the discussion and review of materials with their collaborative lawyers to facilitate finding the best solution to each and every issue that might be raised.
