When children are involved, a divorce does not just mean the dissolution of a marriage. It also means life changes for an entire family. A divorcing couple may take the position to proceed as civilly as possible. Even if two people decide not to remain married, they most likely still want to do what is best for their children. Collaborative divorce is a more amicable option and is an alternative for those who wish to avoid court when legally ending their marriage.
The process of collaborative divorce requires an agreement with promises of good faith from each party moving forward and an honest disclosure of all paperwork and relevant information needed for a resolution that is beneficial to everyone.
Divorce is commonly associated with feelings of anger, hurt, and resentment, but certain situations allow for collaborative law as an option because both parties choose to set those aside in the interest of saving time and money, as well as preserving their family.
