For starters, there are fewer costs associated with collaborative divorce.
From agreeing to use a single expert instead of each side hiring an independent one, to a lack of filing fees for back-and-forth motions from attorneys, you save money during the process.
But where collaborative divorce really shines is in the types of settlements that come out of it.
In a traditional divorce, the sides attempt to negotiate the status of property, finances, and so on, and if that fails, the judge holds a hearing and renders a decision for them.
Alternatively, in a collaborative divorce, the couple has agreed to keep things out of court, focus on the issues at hand, and develop solutions that benefit both parties.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we work closely with our clients to ensure that they have the divorce they want to have.
For many Brooklyn couples, that means avoiding the costs and acrimony of a traditional divorce.
