Get help finding the Right Family Law Lawyer for your case
Collaborative divorce is a procedure in which the parties involved agree not to go to court. In a collaborative divorce, the parties try to reach a fair settlement by attending several meetings, or "joint sessions", with their lawyers. Through these four-way conferences, the parties identify their needs and priorities. In some states, a collaborative divorce is the main form of resolving divorces, because experts believe it is a way for the divorcing parties to make better decisions about their children and other issues.
With a collaborative divorce, there are no time constraints and continue on until a settlement is reached. Also, collaborative divorce may not be an appropriate option for all divorcing parties, especially with issues surrounding domestic violence, drug abuse, alcohol abuse or other disabilities and disorders. Collaborative divorce attorneys require to withdraw from the case if too much conflict is involved. That means the divorcing parties will need to find new representation.
A collaborative divorce lawyer can advise their clients about the law surrounding their case and guide their clients on ways to turn disagreement into a way to solve problems. Collaborative divorce lawyers establish communication, identify issues, analyze consequences, and find effective ways to get the divorcing parties to reach an agreement.
