What Is the Difference Between Collaborative Divorce & Traditional Divorce?

Collaborative divorce is a way to settle issues of divorce without going to trial. This is a non-adversarial approach to divorce where both spouses work together to resolve their differences and create a settlement agreement. In traditional divorce, the case goes to court and is resolved by a judge. This can be a long and difficult process that can have a negative impact on your family.

There are several key differences between the two processes, including:

  • Collaborative divorce is non-adversarial, while traditional divorce is litigious
  • Collaborative divorce is generally quicker and less expensive than traditional divorce
  • Collaborative divorce is private, while traditional divorce is public
  • Collaborative divorce allows you to have more control over the outcome

What Are the Benefits of Collaborative Divorce?

There are several benefits to choosing collaborative divorce over traditional divorce. The first is that it is a non-adversarial process, which means the two parties work together to create a settlement agreement. This can be helpful if you have children and want to maintain a good relationship with your spouse. It can also help you reach a settlement more quickly and at a lower cost.

Another benefit to choosing collaborative divorce is that it is private. This means that the details of your case are not made public. In traditional divorce, the case is heard in court and the details are available to the public. This includes your financial information, which can be a concern for some people.

How Is Child Custody Handled in Collaborative Divorce?

One of the key issues in any divorce is child custody. In collaborative divorce, both parents work together to create a parenting plan that outlines how custody and visitation will be handled. This can be tailored to meet the needs of your family and can be more flexible than a custody order handed down by a judge in traditional divorce.

What Is the Role of the Collaborative Divorce Attorneys?

Both spouses will have their own attorneys in a collaborative divorce case. The attorneys will play a key role in the process. They will help you understand your rights and options and will guide you through the process every step of the way. They can help you negotiate a fair settlement agreement that protects your interests.

What Is the Role of the Other Professionals in a Collaborative Divorce?

In addition to the attorneys, there are other professionals that can help you through the collaborative divorce process. This can include financial advisors, child specialists, and other experts. These professionals can help you make informed decisions about your future and the future of your family.

What Happens If We Can't Reach an Agreement?

If you can't reach an agreement on all the issues in your divorce, you will need to go to court. In this situation, your collaborative divorce attorneys will need to withdraw from your case and you will need to hire new attorneys to represent you in court. It is generally in your best interest to try to reach an agreement in the collaborative process to avoid the need to go to court.
