Why Collaborative Divorce Is Different

When it comes down to it, collaborative divorce encourages constructive dialogue between the separating parties. So, it is a more amicable way to resolve a divorce and is an alternative to the inherent combative nature of a divorce court. Ms Spirio applies collaborative law mediation tactics for marriages, domestic partnership breakups, custody agreements, property settlements. Collaborative mediation is even more important when a divorce or separation involves young kids. It is a less-stressful proceeding and avoids any disputes that happen in a courtroom setting that may impact the children.

How It Works

During a collaborative divorce, each party has its own counsel. These lawyers are specifically chosen because of their commitment to represent their clients in reaching a settlement without resorting to any form of litigation or court adjudication. And it is an approach with the party’s needs in mind. That is because the separating couples are directly involved. They help to create an agreement that resolves all issues, including custody, support, and property division. This approach leads to less animosity since it removes the courtroom setting. Instead, collaborative divorce treats the process as a joint effort. It is not about winning a fight, but rather solving a problem.

In most collaborative law cases, the attorneys and parties agree that they will not go to court beforehand. They will instead focus their efforts on the settlement. This allows for more control from the parties about certain aspects of their divorce or dissolution, such as the cost and the timing.
