Go easy on yourself by starting out with collaborative divorce

Do you feel like there's no reconciling the differences between yourself and your spouse? It is one thing if you never want to see your current partner again, but we find that couples with any common ground at all often benefit from a collaborative process. At King, Koligian & Associates, LLC., one of the most important points we reinforce for our clients is that starting your divorce with an attempt at collaborative law does not mean that you have to finish it that way.

In fact, even if you do not expect success in a collaborative process, it might be a good idea to try it if recommended. The suggestion-- assuming it originates from your lawyer-- probably means that, from a legal perspective, you have a chance of saving yourself some stress by collaborating with your spouse. 

We have found that divorcing couples most often want a quick resolution, a fair division of property and equitable visitation and custody agreements. These are all possible with collaborative law, along with the added benefit of your process often costing less than contested litigation. Collaborative divorces could also give you significantly more control and insight into the divorce than mediation would, especially if you are slightly at odds with your spouse. This is because, in contrast with a more simple mediated divorce, both you and your spouse would have legal representation. Additionally, there would likely be a neutral discovery process.

We often find that even our clients who find no agreement through collaborative law still benefit from the process, from being better prepared for traditional law divorces, for example. Please read more and explore our practice areas on our main legal site.
