Traditional court based divorce is often the most costly way to resolve a dispute. It is common for traditional divorces to begin with a motion for temporary support. The result is a temporary court order rather than a final agreement on the issue. The court based divorce can last for a year or more, is not confidential, involves extensive legal maneuvering by attorneys, numerous hearings, the hiring of experts to support the legal arguments, and at the end, a lengthy trial with unpredictable results. The collaborative divorce process is confidential, can move faster and in most cases will be less expensive than traditional court based divorce.
In collaborative divorce the professionals focus on the participants and their circumstances rather than waiting in court for your case to be called. The professionals will assist the participants in the realistic discussions and reducing conflicts.
