Collaborative divorce is a structured approach to creating a negotiated, mutually beneficial uncontested divorce settlement.
It begins with the parties and their lawyers agreeing not to pursue litigation, and signing on to a schedule of conferences where the issues of your divorce will be worked through.
The parties agree to the use of experts where necessary, but can choose to hire a single expert, rather than each side paying for a high priced witness to bolster their claims in court.
Using a collaborative approach can save you tremendous amounts of time and money.
A contested, litigated divorce can last a year or more, with spiraling attorneys fees and court costs, while a collaborative divorce can often be resolved within a matter of months with a modest expenditure.
