As the name implies, a collaborative divorce is one in which both sides work hard to meet in the middle in an effort to avoid going to trial. It is also described as a “solution-focused” process.
Most people are aware of how emotionally and physically draining a divorce can be. Many people want to avoid a contentious divorce at all cost and want the process to be as amicable as possible. This why attorneys from Huddleston, Robbins & Riddle are Collaboratively trained and why we are members of the Brevard Collaborative Law Group.
Here is a list of benefits of handling a divorce in this manner:
- Avoiding unnecessary litigation and drama.
- Easier on the kids as both parents are trying to find a resolution that would benefit the family.
- Attorneys fees are less then what a contested case would cost.
- Resolved a lot quicker than your typical divorce, usually between 4-6 months.
- Prevent a public court hearing.
- Parties are having trouble cooperating.
- One side is being unreasonable.
- There are unusual issues that both parties see differently.
