Is Collaborative Divorce Right for You?

Sarah Aminzadeh Milinsky | March 5, 2024

The divorce process is as different from one case to the next as the couples involved, so if you’re facing a divorce, it’s important to explore your options and consider which approach may work best for your unique needs. One choice that can be a particularly good fit if you and your ex can work together calmly and constructively is a Collaborative Divorce.

What Happens in a Collaborative Divorce?

When you opt for a Collaborative Divorce, each of you will hire a divorce attorney who is trained in Collaborative Law, understands how this process works and can guide you through it. Then, they’ll help you and your spouse negotiate a resolution, focusing on your individual and joint goals. Typically, a Collaborative Divorce will also include a neutral financial professional as well as a neutral mental health professional, who can help both sides work toward constructive solutions to conflicts.

What Are the Benefits of a Collaborative Divorce?

The Collaborative Divorce process has a few key benefits:

  • You won’t have to go through a potentially long and costly litigation process.
  • You’ll be empowered to find your own strategic solutions rather than needing to comply with a judge’s orders.
  • Everything will be kept private and confidential, so none of your dirty laundry gets aired in court.
