The collaborative divorce process is very different than the traditional approach, relying on the parties to be willing to work together constructively to resolve matters like property distribution, child custody, and financial matters.
Because the couple is developing the framework of the divorce as a team, expenses for things like property valuation and other necessities are lower, since both sides don’t hire an independent expert.
Where a traditional divorce may require a judge to determine the future status of a marital home or how a retirement account will be divided, the collaborative process usually gives the participants much more control over the outcome.
For most people, this is a big advantage of the collaborative divorce process.
If you’re considering a collaborative divorce, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of each approach.
