Self reflection & mutual trust go far in a collaborative divorce

When you and your spouse agree to resolve your divorce through collaborative law, you, your spouse and each of your attorneys sign a binding document agreeing not to go to court. Perhaps when you made that decision, you did not have full information that only came to your attention during the divorce process. When you find yourself in such a situation, what are your options?

What is divorce mediation?

If you are planning to divorce, you may wonder what the divorce process looks like and what your options are for handling your divorce. You may also have questions about those options and it is important to be familiar with all the resources available to determine what the best option for you and your family is.

Divorce mediation is one option that can help avoid divorce litigation during which divorce-related issues are litigated between the couple through the family law court. The mediation process provides an alternative and benefits include utilizing a third-party neutral who can help the divorcing couple effectively negotiate and guide them toward shared agreements concerning the divorce-related issues they need to resolve.

Understanding collaborative divorce basics

There are different options for divorcing couples to consider as alternatives to traditional divorce litigation. These alternative options fall into a category referred to as alternate dispute resolution and include mediation and collaborative divorce. Collaborative divorce requires a commitment from the divorcing couple to the process and can provide many benefits in return.

While this blog recently discussed benefits of mediation, collaborative divorce is another beneficial alternative to consider. Both mediation and collaborative divorce allow divorcing couples to reach settlements concerning their divorce-related concerns rather than to litigate them through the family law court. The family law court is always available to help but litigating divorce-related issues can be costlier and more time-consuming. Divorce-related concerns including property division, child custody, spousal support and child support can all be addressed through the family law process.
