Why choose the collaborative process?
In the collaborate process both parties agree from the start to achieve a mutually agreeable settlement without court involvement. With the threat of court taken out of the equation the spouses, with the help of their own attorneys and other experts, are able to work together to create an agreement that meets the needs of everyone. In collaborative law you retain control over the process. You and your spouse are much better equipped to make decisions about the future of your children than a judge. Those who are successful with the collaborative process are also more likely to work out their differences in the future without resorting to the courts.
