Who does collaborative divorce work for?

On Behalf of | Jun 1, 2022 | Divorce

Everyone going through a divorce would likely agree that they would be happy if the overall stress of their divorce saw a serious reduction.

Fortunately, this is actually possible for many people, as collaborative divorce can help a couple avoid court.

Who does it work for?

Forbes focuses on some of the best ways to reduce stress in a divorce situation. Avoiding court serves as one of the biggest potential reductions in stress that could reasonably happen. This can not only save a couple stress, but it saves time and money while also protecting personal information.

Collaborative divorce does not necessarily work for everyone, though. Generally speaking, a couple should already share many similar opinions about the biggest matters of divorce such as alimony, child custody, child support, and the division of assets and debt.

Of course, some disagreement is natural and expected. This is why each person in a collaborative divorce will hire a personal representative. They help both parties walk through the patches they disagree with each other on and can negotiate a final outcome that everyone feels satisfied with.

Who should try something else?

Collaborative divorce does not tend to work for a couple who can hardly stand to be in the same room together, let alone talk to one another. Relying entirely on a personal representative for all communication generally does not work.

Likewise, representatives do not have the training mediators do, so they do not sign up for stopping endless arguments and shouting matches. It may also not work for a couple who disagree on crucial aspects of the split, like those mentioned above.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
