Collaborative Dissolution of Marriage
Collaborative Dissolution of Marriage is an option for parties who can agree on some things and can likely agree on others with a little coaching or rational, full-disclosure discussion. In this situation, a Collaborative Dissolution of Marriage is a good option that will take away the adversarial relationship of the parties and the attorneys. The focus of Collaborative Divorce is intent on resolving issues in dispute and making good decisions that both parties can live with. The structure of a collaborative dissolution of marriage is one in which both parties are working together to provide the necessary information to each other, so each spouse can make an informed decision.
Many parents, especially, find that the collaborative process leads to a more satisfactory outcome regarding their children, timesharing, and child support. This can lead to a healthier relationship between the children and both parents, post-divorce.
