Not only does collaborative divorce reduce the conflict surrounding divorce, but it also tends to reduce the cost and duration. Other benefits of collaborative law include:
In addition to the attorneys, collaborative divorce involves child and financial specialists, and other professionals who work together as your team.
• Client control:
The participants control the outcome of their collaborative negotiations, rather than leaving it up to a court to decide.
• Client satisfaction:
A high percentage of collaborative law participants report satisfaction with the process as well as the results, compared with clients who litigate their cases in court.
• Maintaining privacy:
Unlike litigation, which plays out in a public courtroom, collaborative law is a private, confidential process.
• Setting your timeline:
Litigated cases take months or years to resolve, in large part because our courts are overburdened. In contrast, the parties in a collaborative divorce set their own timetable.
• Preserving relationships:
In cases involving children, preserving communication and cooperation between the parents is an important benefit of collaborative law. Collaborative law fosters communication and cooperation.
