What Happens in Collaborative Divorce Proceedings?
In a collaborative divorce, both parties generally employ an attorney to monitor the negotiation and give input when necessary. The group will meet as often as necessary to establish a mutual agreement regarding the terms of a divorce. Additionally, you may cover topics such as:
- Establishing the terms of child custody concerns
- Establishing child support payment amounts
- Negotiating a settlement
- Negotiating the division of property
How Do I Schedule a Collaborative Divorce?
To set up a collaborative divorce, the first step is to acknowledge that you would like to pursue a less complicated approach—where the demands and expectations of both parties are heard. The second step is to ensure that your spouse is equally willing to negotiate. Lastly, both parties will want to consult with an attorney with a background of successfully assisting clients using an alternative dispute resolution approach.
