Collaborative Family Law PA
Collaborative Law empowers you to resolve legal disputes without judges, magistrates or court personnel making decisions for you. Most commonly used in divorce, couples who choose Collaborative Law are able to discuss, work together and achieve mutually agreeable outcomes that produce outcomes that are longer lasting and far more desirable than litigation.
In a Collaborative Divorce, each spouse hires a specially trained Collaborative lawyer and pledges to adhere to certain principles. The goal of all involved is to resolve the couple’s disputes openly, respectfully and in a manner that meets the needs and interests of both parties. To do so, couples engaged in the Collaborative divorce process pledge to follow an established set of guidelines:
- They will not resort to the courts to resolve their case.
- They will be open and honest and will produce information on their assets and debts freely and voluntarily.
- They agree to think about and analyze their needs and interests for the future.
- They pledge to explore options and solutions until they reach an agreement that works for both spouses.
While every Collaborative case is different, most often they produce outcomes and agreements that are built on far sturdier foundations than traditional divorce cases. Collaborative divorce provides a framework for the couple to use in the future as issues arise regarding their children and finances.
