Collaborative Divorce Attorney in Las Vegas

Understanding the Collaborative Divorce Process

A collaborative divorce is a newer approach to the divorce process. It involves the agreement of both spouses to resolve their issues outside of the courtroom in order to reach a mutually acceptable and beneficial divorce settlement. As opposed to a contested divorce in court, a collaborative divorce does not involve the courts until the final decree. The following principles apply in these matters:

  • Divorcing spouses will work with one another to reach their own settlement, without the intervention of the court to make decisions for them.
  • Spouses will agree to full disclosure and open communication through the entire process.
  • Should one or both spouses decide to engage in litigation at any point in the collaborative process, the professionals representing the clients must agree to withdraw from the case at this point.

If you are interested in taking a less adversarial approach to your divorce, a collaborative divorce may be just the answer you have been looking for. A Las Vegas divorce attorney at our law firm can explain the process to you in more detail and can answer any questions you have in order to help you make the right choice for your particular situation.

Benefits of a Collaborative Approach

There are a number of benefits to be experienced by choosing a collaborative divorce. First and foremost, you will most likely save money by avoiding a drawn out courtroom battle. Litigation involves countless hours spent by attorneys preparing for court proceedings, waiting in court, preparing for trial and at trial itself. You will also save a great deal of time. Depending on how busy the courtroom is, you may end up waiting weeks or months for your case to be heard.

A collaborative approach to divorce also gives you the opportunity to work out your own agreements regarding property division, child custody and visitation, child support and spousal support – without the court deciding on these for you. You and your spouse may find that you have more freedom in working out arrangements that suit your family's unique needs. In the long run, this can make all the difference in the workability of your divorce settlement.

Finally, you have the chance to avoid a great deal of stress by choosing a collaborative approach. Negotiating to reach a mutually beneficial agreement can help to preserve an amicable relationship between you and your spouse. It can also reduce the amount of stress that your children experience through the process.
