Georgia Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative Divorce is a relatively new option for spouses who desire to work together to reach an agreement without having to resort to litigation.  In a collaborative divorce, the spouse and their attorneys pledge to work together to achieve an outcome that is mutually beneficial.  Collaborative divorce is especially beneficial when children are involved because the spouses work with a team that includes a financial expert and psychologist to ensure that they reach an agreement that is in the best interests of any children who are involved in the divorce. 

Deciding if Collaborative Divorce is Right for You

In a nutshell, collaborative divorce is typically more expensive than mediation but less expensive than litigation.  Collaborative divorce is a good option for families seeking to reduce the emotional tension and financial battles that often occur when children are involved.  By selecting a collaborative divorce, you invite open communication into the divorce process with the assistance of trained attorneys as well as a financial expert and mental health professional to guide you along the way.

Benefits of Collaborative Divorce

The benefits of collaborative divorce are numerous and long-lasting.  First and foremost, collaborative divorce drastically reduces or even eliminates altogether the emotional scars that often accompany the divorce process.  Additionally, collaborative divorce offers a non-confrontational atmosphere where full disclosure of the pertinent facts can be exchanged with the shared goal of reaching an outcome that is most beneficial to every member of the family.  Finally, collaborative divorce is guided by trained legal, financial and psychological experts who work together to reach an agreement that addresses details that are more commonly overlooked in the traditional litigation process.
