Top Benefits Of Collaborative Law In A Divorce

While the benefits of collaborative law are vast and could be different for your specific situation, here are some of the most common and major benefits:

  • Efficient: Unlike a divorce litigation case and couples who refuse to agree on many or all divorce issues such as spousal support, child custody and property division, which can take months or even years, collaborative law can be very efficient. The more parties are able to work together, the faster the divorce process often can be.
  • Cost-Effective: With many divorce cases that are more efficient, the cost can also be reduced. As the old adage goes, time is money, that is almost always the case in divorce. Collaborative law divorce can help in many divorce cases to reduce the cost for both parties.
  • Customization: When a divorce goes before a judge, the final decision on all issues is up to the judge. There is no room for parties to give their input. What the judge decides is the final say. Collaborative law allows you and your spouse to determine how you want your agreement to look and how it impacts your children.
  • Amicable: Let's face it, life is just easier when people can get along. The same goes for a divorce. If you and your spouse go forward as amicable and cooperative adults, it is generally easier for everyone. This is most importantly a good thing for any children involved.
