Rockingham County Collaborative Divorce Lawyer
The heart of collaborative divorce is to offer people the support and guidance they need through their divorce. There are several benefits to the collaborative divorce method, including:
- The ability to negotiate a mutually acceptable settlement without relying on a court's decision
- The ability to maintain open communication throughout
- The ability to work together, through full disclosure, to reach a beneficial settlement
- Collaboration focuses on creative problem solving rather than revenge
- The collaborative process is generally less stressful and less expensive than a courtroom proceeding
Collaborative law, much like mediation, is a process for alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that focuses more on problem solving rather than confrontation. It is a low-stress, directed method of resolution that allows the two parties to determine the compromise that best fits their unique situation without relying on a judge's order.
