What is a Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative Divorce

Category: Divorce , Family Law

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.
Sometimes litigation is necessary, and we understand that. We also handle these types of cases and are very well trained to do so. Common reasons for going this route include:

  • Parties are having trouble cooperating.
  • One side is being unreasonable.
  • There are unusual issues that both parties see differently.

It is a great idea to speak with your spouse and ascertain which direction the divorce needs to go. Then you can meet with your attorney and notify them of your situation.
