Key Factors in a Successful Collaborative Divorce

Sarah Aminzadeh Milinsky | March 5, 2024

The Collaborative Divorce process may be a great way to resolve your differences and reach an amicable divorce settlement without the need for courtroom litigation. However, it’s not for everyone. A few key factors go into a successful Collaborative Divorce, and if you’re missing these, this option may not be the right choice.

  1. Both spouses must be willing to focus on the future, rather than dwelling on what went wrong and dredging up issues from the past.
  2. You must be able to recognize what your goals and priorities are for the process and for your post-divorce life, and you must be able to communicate these interests.
  3. You must be respectful of your spouse and recognize that they also have goals and priorities, some of which may not line up perfectly with yours.
