Traditional vs Collaborative Divorce

Getting divorced can be a very difficult time for both parties, children and the family as a whole . It involves attorneys, courtroom dates, a lot of costs and time, especially when the two parties are in disagreement about a lot of issues. In this case, the divorce law and the courts seek to resolve these disagreements, therefor making divorce a very complex and often times lengthy process from start to finish.

In some circumstances both parties are actually willing to work together and their respected attorneys to resolve their conflicts peacefully, without getting the courts to intervene in the decisions and outcomes. In this case Collaborative Divorce can be a great option.

What is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative Divorce is a process in which both parties use mediation, cooperation and negotiations to dissolve their marriage. Although Collaborative divorce can be of great benefit, it only works when both parties are open to this type of conflict resolution. If one of the parties is not willing to use cooperative negotiations, this option will not be of any use.

If this is the right option for you, make sure you chose an attorney like Paul S. Maney who is trained in Collaborative divorce.
