"A clear purpose will unite you as you move forward, values will guide your behavior, and goals will focus your energy." - Kenneth H. Blanchard
In a complex legal system where values, goals, and opinions get buried in a sea of legal jargon and procedure, how would it feel to be the one in control of your own divorce process? This is the essence of collaborative divorce and you can be empowered to take control of the outcome of your case.
Collaborative divorce is a new approach to dissolution from the traditional path of costly litigation and a constant adversarial position. Collaborative divorce minimizes the cost of litigation by focusing the parties’ attention on the most central issues of their divorce. It shifts the focus onto how working together can allow the parties to reach a mutually agreed cohesive agreement. It allows parties to recognize the importance of focusing on the restructuring of the family unit and the need to be the ones making important decisions about their own family unit.
Who better to control the outcome of their case then the clients themselves? After all, you the client, are the ones who must live with the outcomes of your legal proceedings. Collaborative divorce allows for client empowerment which is often overlooked in the traditional litigation route of divorce. It is important for clients to understand that at a time when it feels as though their lives are falling apart, it is truly during this time they have the ability to control an outcome which is in the best interest of resolving their problems and what is in the best interest of their children.
Your attorney still plays a vital role in the collaboration process by assisting the client in articulating his/her interests, ensuring you understand the consequences of options available, and ensuring the playing field is leveled with opposing counsel.
