How does a Collaborative Divorce benefit me?

Divorce is not easy. It can be expensive, time consuming, and unsettling, to say the least. With Collaborative Divorce, some of the common stressors of divorce are alleviated through a resolution process designed to preserve the integrity and dignity of families in conflict.


Benefits of Collaborative Divorce:

  • More cost effective than traditional litigation.
  • Takes less time than going to court.
  • Keeps families out of stressful court situations, therefore safeguarding children from undue trauma while protecting their needs.
  • Removes the toxic nature of conventional divorce, providing more amicable solutions that can preserve relationships afterwards.
  • Provides a support system encompassing expert legal and financial guidance, as well as compassion for all involved.
  • Establishes conditions that result in respectful and open dialogue toward a mutually agreeable settlement.
  • A more comprehensive agreement is often reached, based on respectful negotiations, mediation, and cooperation between parties, where you and your spouse decide the issues, rather than by a judge in court.
  • Focuses on the well being of the family beyond the divorce.

Getting a divorce can be a very difficult decision to make, but the process does not have to be. If you and your divorcing spouse have made the decision to get a divorce, you have the opportunity to handle your situation in a civil way. Doing so can have a profound effect on the dynamic of your family in the aftermath of the divorce. Further, it can help you as an individual on a more intrinsic level: a sense of resolve, acceptance, and readiness to move forward.

Only you and your divorcing spouse can make this decision. It is completely in your power to control how you want to resolve your divorce. Whether it be through divorce litigation, mediation, or collaborative law.

Our goal at Bucks County Collaborative Law Group is to facilitate a process that keeps you and your divorcing spouse out of court, while resolving your divorce matters in a fair and civil manner.
