If you and your spouse should ever decide that it is best to end your marriage,
it is highly advisable that you consider pursuing a collaborative divorce.
A collaborative divorce involves you working with your spouse towards
reaching a mutually agreeable
divorce arrangement, thereby avoiding the need for court involvement.
There are several benefits associated with this method, including:
- Reduced cost for both parties
- No need for courtroom litigation
- Minimizing tension between spouses
- Much quicker resolution
Both spouses retain their own individual legal representation and financial
counsel like in a traditionally contested divorce, but the aim of this
is to cooperate with each other in an honest and completely open manner.
With the help of their legal advisors, the divorcing couple cooperates
with each other towards resolving issues related to issues such as the
division of assets,
child custody/visitation arrangements,
child support payments, and
alimony. Once an arrangement is agreed upon, the decision is finalized via a judge’s
This method of dissolving your marriage can be much more desirable in both
the short term and long term, as it keeps open the possibility for an
amicable relationship between you and your spouse. If you have children,
this can be a greatly desirable road to take in order to alleviate the
stress that they experience by helping to keep a relative sense of stability
following your divorce.
