Exploring the Benefits of Collaborative Divorce
For couples willing to work together to resolve disputes stemming relating to the end of their marriage, the collaborative divorce process offers many benefits. Rather than undergoing a heated divorce battle in court, and in full view of the public, or dragging your children through an emotionally damaging process, collaborative divorce allows you to work together to resolve your issues.
The Top-Cited Benefits of Collaborative Divorce
In addition to the emotional aspects of the process, there are many reasons a couple may wish to consider the collaborative divorce process, including:
- Convenience: The steps in the collaborative divorce process take place fully outside of the courts. This allows you and your spouse to set your own schedules, and to move at your own pace. If you can resolve disputes quickly and effectively, the collaborative divorce process can be completed faster than a standard contested divorce.
- Confidentiality: In the collaborative divorce process, negotiations between you and your spouse take place behind closed doors, rather than in public courtrooms. This allows for a more confidential, personal dissolution of your marriage. It also allows you to shield your children from the public nature of a standard divorce.
- Control: Throughout the process, you and your spouse are given control over the resolution of your disputes. While outside parties may offer suggestions and advice on the resolution of specific matters, like custody and visitation. The ultimate agreement comes down to you and your partner, rather than a judge.

Is Collaborative Divorce Right for You?
While it offers many benefits, the collaborative divorce process is not a viable option for every couple. To be effective, the collaborative divorce process requires:
- Spouses willing to work together to resolve disputes
- Open lines of communication between all parties
- Patience and commitment
- A joint commitment to resolve disputes, without taking them to court
If these attributes apply to you and your spouse, the collaborative divorce process may be an option worth considering.
