Divorce is a difficult process in which two parties must disentangle their finances, parenting responsibilities and other aspects of their lives. It's an emotional, complicated thing to walk through, and many couples may be looking for a way to minimize complications and stress. One way to do this is by choosing a collaborative divorce.
Every year, numerous couples in Arizona choose to end their marriages. When they do, they have to figure out the best way to go about it. Traditional divorce is not for everyone. There are those who want to avoid the drama of a courtroom or avoid meeting with a mediator. For those individuals, collaborative divorce may be the way to go.
The divorce process can be confusing and difficult, both emotionally and financially. However, just because you are preparing for divorce doesn't mean the process has to feel like a war with your spouse.
Although collaborative law is a somewhat new area of practice in Arizona, it offers divorcing parties the opportunity to work through the issues and reach an agreement without litigation. Both the parties and their lawyers work together in an effort to find a resolution that is acceptable. A collaborative approach may allow the process to be completed efficiently without a third-party making decisions in which neither party has a say.
