Collaborative Divorce is an out-of-court process for resolving the emotional, financial, and legal aspects of a divorce. The divorcing couple commits to hiring a team of collaborative professionals who then work with the couple throughout a series of meetings in order to develop a mutually agreeable durable settlement. The collaborative process requires full financial disclosures, a commitment to stay out of court, and the engagement of a team of two collaboratively trained divorce attorneys (one for each spouse), a neutral mental health professional (divorce coach), and a neutral financial specialist.
This collaborative approach allows the divorcing couple to utilize the professional collaborative team as necessary to work through emotional, financial, and legal issues to successfully reach a workable settlement that they both can comfortably agree to. While the collaborative process is not for everyone, it can be a successful way for some couples to divorce more amicably.
Wendy Alton is also a trained and certified family law mediator and a trial attorney with over 17 years of experience. If you have questions about the divorce process, contact Wendy and she can explain the options available to you, including traditional litigation, negotiated settlement, mediation, arbitration, and collaborative divorce.
