SAN DIEGO COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE ATTORNEY

Are you and your partner looking for a divorce option that is more amicable and cost effective than the traditional litigation case? If so, collaborative divorce may be right for you. You and your spouse may be having trouble agreeing on important issues such as asset division and child custody. You don’t have to turn to expensive cut throat litigation. There is a new Family Law practice called collaborative divorce where both sides work together to negotiate mutually beneficial terms.

HOW DOES COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE WORK?

In a collaborative divorce both parties’ attorneys agree to work together to solve disputes. Other professionals may also be invited to negotiations. Instead of each side trying to “win” the goal is to maximize the benefits to both sides as well as to any children. When everyone works together to reach a common goal, divorces often have a less bitter ending. Especially when children are involved, it is important to learn how to engage civilly with your former partner and still operate as a family.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE?

There are many benefits to a collaborative divorce. Two of the benefits mentioned above are less bitterness and lower costs. Working together fosters less negative feeling than fighting against each other. Litigation can also be very expensive. Using positive techniques to solve disputes is much more cost effect.

Some of the additional benefits include having a shorter divorce, more control over the divorce settlement and putting your children through less stress. Litigation can be a very lengthy process. Collaborative divorces normally end much quicker. When you collaborate each party brings their specific needs to the table, resulting in a divorced tailored to suit your specific needs. In a litigation case the terms will likely have more to do with general laws. However, the most important benefit is the affects it will have on your children. When children see their parents working together it is much easier for them to deal with the divorce. No child wants to see his parents at each other’s throats.
