Benefits of Collaborative Divorce: How Can it Foster Effective Communication?

Kelly Caperton Fischer | January 5, 2024

One of the key benefits of Collaborative Divorce is that it can help to create a more positive and productive relationship between divorcing spouses during this process. Collaborative Divorce benefits couples by giving them a safe environment that encourages them to work together and devise creative solutions to resolve their differences. When spouses agree to a Collaborative Divorce, they both agree that they will not take their disagreements to court, and knowing that they won’t have to go through the ordeal of divorce litigation can remove a lot of the pressure and stress that they’re feeling. Absent this stress, they may even be able to think of more options to help them reach an amicable resolution.
