The Benefits Of Collaborative Divorce


Alternative dispute resolution techniques are growing in popularity as a way to resolve the issues involved in a divorce outside of the courtroom, and with good reason. One such method of resolution is called collaborative divorce, and there are many benefits to utilizing this option over other dispute resolution techniques or traditional courtroom litigation. If you are interested in learning more about how collaborative divorce may help in your divorce, call or contact the Donna Hung Law Group today to schedule an initial evaluation of your case now.

Control the Process

One of the biggest benefits of collaborative divorce is the ability to control the process. Couples are not bound to a court schedule and can calendar collaborative divorce sessions at times that work best for them. This often results in divorce settlements being finalized faster, and cheaper, than when using traditional litigation.

Utilize Third Party Professionals

Another benefit unique to collaborative divorce is the use of third-party professionals to help with the case. Couples can recruit experts like financial advisors, child psychologists, appraisers, and others to work through issues that may otherwise have burdened a couple in other alternative dispute resolution methods. Not only can these third-party professionals help craft solutions for the divorce settlement, but they can also assist in preparing for the future post-divorce.

Craft Solutions Customized for You

Collaborative divorce also allows for couples to craft customized solutions to issues that are unique to their circumstances. Sentimental attachment to certain property may result in a customized property distribution, or the current living situation of each spouse may result in a unique custody arrangement for children or pets. Traditional litigation often results in a judge issuing a boilerplate decision that may not be in the best interest of either party in a divorce, and collaborative divorce can help avoid this situation entirely.

Privacy During a Difficult Time

Lastly, collaborative divorce provides privacy for you and your loved ones during this difficult time. Traditional litigation takes place in the courtroom, which means that everything goes on the record that can be accessed by the public at any time. Everything that is discussed, argued, and decided is open to public scrutiny, but with collaborative divorce this is not the case. Everything discussed and negotiated during collaborative proceedings remains confidential, even if ultimately collaborative methods are unsuccessful in resolving all issues in a Florida divorce. Nothing said can be used later as evidence, which makes alternative dispute resolution particularly attractive to couples who wish to retain their privacy during this time.
