Some problems can’t wait. When your marriage isn’t working, you want a divorce without financially damaging and emotionally draining court proceedings. The collaborative process---one where you and your spouse and resolve all marital issues privately outside a courtroom---provides a speedier and far less expensive option. The process may be guided by a mediator while in others each person may choose to act with and through their attorneys. Common to both forms of collaboration is the desire and ability of each party to work in good faith toward practical solutions on the division of marital assets, support, custody, and visitation issues.
The collaborative process ends with the same enforceable agreement a court would enter on all issues on which the parties have agreed. Unresolved issues remain are dealt with in a family law court through motions, hearings, settlement conferences, and often trial. The court's judgment is often close to compromises previously considered by the parties. The court proceeds slowly, even more slowly now due to the Pandemic, further delaying the ability of the parties to move on with their lives.
