Collaborative Law and Your Children

Collaborative Law and Your Children

Collaborative law provides parents with a more amicable method for parting ways, but still preserves the relationship they have as parents of their children.

During the collaborative law process, both parties sit down with a neutral third party facilitator to work through each issue in the divorce, working toward a compromise. The mediator will guide the couple through a strategic conversation and negotiation, pointed toward an efficient resolution.

Mutual Buy-In And A More Efficient And Effective Road To A Resolution

Because both parents have equal buy-in on creating the final divorce proposal, both are likely to be happy with the outcome and it is much more likely to be honored by everyone involved. This allows the parents to actively decide how the children will be cared for and provided for, rather than leaving it to the discretion of the judge.

Many people believe that collaborative law is beneficial for the children. It often prevents parents from additional fighting and putting strain on the children. Also, since the two worked together to reach an agreement, they are often much more amicable in their interactions and cooperate more on raising the child. The harmony is believed to be in the best interests of the children.
