What is collaborative practice?
Collaborative Practice is a customized process to help separating couples divide their assets, restructure their family, and plan for their future.
3 Benefits of Collaborative Practice
1. Effective court alternative
The collaborative process is an effective court alternative that allows separating couples the opportunity to make their own decisions and negotiations with the help of their legal teams outside of the court system. Going to court can result in an order that neither party would have chosen. The collaborative process allows both parties to separate amicably while focusing on their goals and interests to achieve the best possible outcome for themselves and their children.
2. Private concierge process
Court cases are documented, referenced, and available to the general public. Getting divorced outside of court may also keep your matter private.
3. Goes beyond the legal model
The traditional legal model can prolong the decision-making process for both parties, often times resulting in uncertainty and frustration. Collaborative practice allows parties to proceed with decision-making peacefully and amicably and sooner begin to move forward.
