Cost Benefit Value of a Collaborative Divorce
“How much will my divorce cost me?” is a loaded question. The cost of divorce is much more than dollars and cents.
- By choosing collaborative divorce you create value in the opportunity to gain knowledge and insight into both your family and the divorce process and how you and your family can work through divorce and come out stronger on the other side. The process of working collaboratively with your spouse, your lawyers and potentially a mental health professional and financial professional establishes resources for defining the goals and needs of your family member and professionals trained in creative problem solving.
- The collaborative choice means that you will work with a team of professionals all intent and invested in working together to protect you and preserving what you value most. Working collaboratively gives you the chance to build trust at a time when your world is changing. You’ll have the chance to discuss all of your questions in a forum where you can feel safe and engage in negotiation with your spouse in a professional setting.
- The value to you and your family of investing your money in a collaborative process and skilled professionals who are both accessible and trained to do more than present your case to a judge. Collaborative lawyers are committed to resolving your differences and maintain your privacy without dragging you into the public forum of a courtroom.
Professionals engaged in the collaborative divorce process are trained negotiators with insight into how to help manage the emotions of divorcing and keep you on the track of resolving the marriage and helping you establish a more professional relationship with your spouse so that you can go back to the business of moving forward with your lives.
