When collaborative law — which also encompasses mediation — is referred to as a less-sticky alternative, it is being compared to the litigation process.
In family law, and especially regarding divorce, litigation is centrally deemed as being very hostile, with the spouses having to deal with a variation of issues. The court sets the time for bringing up the certain issues, with the judge deciding the legal judgment concerning material divorce matters.
Some divorcing parties provoke under that process. Divorcees are afraid of leaving all the decision making processes to a third person party.
For a increasingly growing number of divorcing spouses, including divorcing parties in Illinois and Missouri, collaborative law is being a huge option to escaping courtroom adversarialism.
At the Stange Law Firm, we understand that. Indeed, with firm lawyers who command specialized experience as collaborative divorce attorneys and trained mediators, we strongly support the efforts of soon-to-be exes who centrally seek to remain civil and exert ultimate control throughout — and after — the divorce process.
Collaborative divorce is not for everyone. Some divorces agreeably need a third party option to help throughout the dispute.
For many people, collaborative divorce just makes sense. Spouses going through collaborative divorce realize that they can talk to one another about disputes and issues. They can take sidetracks if they wish to address financial matters or psychological dimensions. Lastly, they can dictate the time and how the process will go. And, most often, they can save money and avoid losing the friendship that they once had.
