Fortunately, in some cases, family law matters can be mutually resolved to everyone’s satisfaction. Generally, this means the two parties mutually agree on big issues such as property division. Some parents also have previously agreed about each of their roles in timesharing and parental responsibility. When a divorce is not contested, reaching an agreement on these big issues is beneficial. This allows both parties to move forward, and allows each to have a caring, nurturing relationship with their children. Collaborative divorce allows for respectful communication between the parties.
During the collaborative law process, you need an independent third party who will help negotiate with both parties on areas upon which they do not agree. This process saves time and money while fostering an honest, open exchange of viewpoints. Typically, before the beginning of this process, each party hires his or her own attorney and agrees not to take unresolved matters to court. This provides both parties an incentive to reach a mutually-agreeable resolution.
