Collaborative Law is a NON-ADVERSARIAL process that focuses on the parties and their family.
If your marriage is ending and you and your spouse are unable to agree on all critical details, you are probably feeling somewhat overwhelmed. In certain circumstances, an uncontested divorce simply is not possible.
Collaborative Divorce (also called Collaborative Law or Collaborative Practice) is a structured process that provides an alternative to fighting everything out in court. The Collaborative Divorce choice offers you the opportunity to focus on what is important to you, your family and your future. Its purpose is to create a safe, open and respectful environment where people can honestly discuss and resolve their outstanding issues with dignity and fairness.
The Collaborative Divorce process is specifically designed to promote and secure win-win resolutions that are structured and tailored to the unique facts and circumstances of your situation and your family. Couples facing separation and divorce encounter and face many different challenges. These challenges are often monumental and affect every aspect of person’s life. This is especially true when children are involved. During this critical time, it is imperative that BOTH parents work towards a resolution that addresses the many complex variables and gives significant thought to the needs of everyone long after the divorce itself is concluded. The Collaborative Divorce process is centered around providing a positive environment in which couples can openly communicate and address these concerns without resorting to litigation.
Avoiding full blown litigation is important for many reasons. First, it is incredibly expensive. Second, it necessarily entails a tremendous amount of uncertainty as commissioner and judges in Washington State are largely free to craft ANY remedy that they deem fair and equitable. Third, litigation is extremely time consuming and frequently requires that a divorce be drug out over the course of a year or more. Fourth, and most importantly, litigation is an excruciatingly painful process. It is emotionally and psychologically exhausting. The process itself takes it toll on everyone. The real problem with traditional divorce litigation is that it is process in which the Parties are forced to attack each other in a strictly adversarial and me-first environment. It quickly deteriorates into a take-no-prisoners battlefront. The results are predictably devastating. It leaves deep scars that often take years to heal, if they do at all. In the end, litigation is akin to a high stakes poker game where there often are no winners. And, frequently, the biggest losers are the children.
The Collaborative Divorce process is specifically designed to succeed where traditional divorce litigation has failed so miserably. Indeed, the process itself is designed to do the one thing that litigation by its very nature prevents couples from doing: Crafting a resolution that truly benefits all of the parties involved.
