Collaborative Family Law – An Alternative to Court Divorce

Going through a separation and divorce is an incredibly trying time in a couple’s and family’s life. This difficult period can be even more difficult and stressful when the proceedings are dragged through the court system for extended periods of time with opposing parties fighting over every matter involved in dissolving the marriage.

Rather than taking the divorce proceedings to the court, there are other viable and less stressful options for those separating. Among these options is collaborative family law. This alternative to court divorce offers divorcing couples a much more dignified and cooperative approach to an otherwise potentially stressful and exasperating situation.

What is Collaborative Family Law?

Collaborative law is a legal process whereby the divorcing spouses find alternatives to divorce court and judgements in order to dissolve their marriage amicably. The divorcing couple will work with lawyers trained in negotiation, mediation, arbitration or collaborative family law.  Other family professionals may also be involved, including accountants, financial planners, child psychologists or others in order to facilitate the separation agreement.  This alternative to divorce ultimately leaves much more control in hands of the separating couple in comparison to court proceedings, where the judge will ultimately have the final say.

With such a process, collaborative family law proceedings will allow each party to achieve a settlement that meets their needs, that they are generally satisfied with. This is a voluntary process that generally involves each party signing a contract that binds each party to this particular process, showing their commitment to work collaboratively to reach a settlement.
