A collaborative divorce process is when attorneys and parties from both sides agree to work together in resolving any divorce issues, such as child custody and spousal support, by signing an agreement to not take the case to trial. A successful collaborative divorce can mean reaching an agreement that works for all parties involved, which is beneficial for spouses with unique situations. Courts are bound by law, making it difficult for each party to get what they want. A collaborative divorce ensures each voice is heard.
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) method, where parties use a third-party neutral mediator to help resolve their issues, such as child custody, child support, alimony, enforcement of court orders, modification of court orders and father’s rights.
Just why is mediation preferred by so many people? Mediation and collaborative law provide benefits are:
Collaborative law can be used in almost every practice area, but there are some areas in which it is used more often. While trial courts are not very good at addressing emotional needs, collaborative law's flexibility allows it to create solutions that take these feelings into account. Mediation agreements can even include an order to send an apology note, or even flowers.
Through the negotiations of collaborative divorce, parties can put their lives back in order. A mediation and collaborative law attorney can make sure you understand the law, your rights, your obligations, and the legal effect of your decisions. There is also a strong focus on respect throughout this process, and that is one of the many things that make it a potentially great option. This goes a long way when people are trying to move on with their lives.
