Collaborative law is not for everyone. According to the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, the collaborative approach is likely to be a good option for you if you believe the following values are important:
• I want to maintain a tone of respect even when we disagree.
• I want to prioritize the needs of our children.
• My needs and those of my spouse require equal consideration, and I will listen objectively.
• I believe that working creatively and cooperatively solves issues.
• It is important to reach beyond today's frustration and pain to plan for the future.
• I can behave ethically toward my spouse.
• I choose to maintain control of the divorce process with my spouse and not relegate it to the courts.
Collaborative law helps you maintain those values, while reducing the destructive aspects of a conventional divorce. Visit our collaborative law FAQ page
to learn more about the process.
