What is Collaborative Divorce all about?
Collaborative Divorce is about cooperating to solve your problems instead of fighting about it. The idea behind the collaborative process is to look at both parties’ goals and interests and try to address those to come up with a solution that can then be brought into compliance with the law rather than for both parties to hire lawyers and begin arguing about exactly what each party is entitled to.
This can be a great solution for parties who are able to focus on finding a solution rather than enforcing their rights. Unfortunately, in many divorces there is a lot of anger and emotion which causes parties to be very focused on attempting to “beat” their spouse rather than simply working towards a resolution.
