One of the key elements of a collaborative divorce is the absence of the underlying threat of litigation. Both parties enter into a participation agreement that binds them to the provisions set forth within, commonly including the following:
- Issues are to be settled using interest-based negotiation
- Decisions will be made in the children’s best interests
- Both parties will rely on their lawyers to negotiate the settlement
- Constructive and fair communication will be required
- The reasons for which either party may withdraw from the process
Utilizing these factors, collaborative divorce can allow you to get through the process without the emotional trauma that all too frequently accompanies a potentially hostile, traditional divorce.
