Schaumburg Collaborative Divorce Lawyer

Illinois Collaborative Divorce Process Attorney

At Anderson Attorneys, P.C., consider collaborative divorce to be an essential tool in the practice of family law. Collaborative law allows couples to obtain a divorce without having to go through the arduous process of litigation. Collaborative divorce will result in an agreement that both parties find satisfactory. The attorneys then present the written agreement to a family law judge, who makes it part of the couple's divorce decree. The collaborative divorce process works, and it can address virtually every main issue related to divorce, including division of marital property, allocation of debt, child custody and visitation, and even the ability of one of the parents to relocate.

Benefits of Collaborative Divorces

The collaborative process often allows couples to obtain a divorce much more quickly than going to trial, and it can avoid many of the costs associated with litigation. One reason why collaborative divorces are appealing is the role the attorneys play. Unlike a traditional divorce trial, in a collaborative divorce, clients retain their attorneys only to represent them with the negotiation of a divorce settlement. If the parties are unable to reach agreement, the attorneys must withdraw, and the parties have to obtain new legal representation to litigate the issues.

Collaborative divorces are not for everyone. The process is non-adversarial, and it will break down if the parties deviate from this principle. For the collaborative process to work, the parties have to be truly committed to working together, being forthcoming with necessary disclosures, and having a family law attorney by their side who is experienced in collaborative divorces.

The Value of a Good Collaborative Divorce Attorney

Hiring an experienced collaborative divorce attorney is particularly important. Unlike mediation, there is no neutral mediator in collaborative divorces, and the parties must rely on their attorneys to formulate a strong negotiating strategy that achieves the best outcome for the client without antagonizing the other party. This is not an easy task. Divorce is a difficult process, and it can take a toll, even when the parties agree that ending their marriage is the best choice for everyone involved. We understand this challenge, and we plan negotiations to minimize the impact of the divorce on the parties.

We are seasoned and trained in the art of collaborative divorce. We pride ourselves in counseling our clients through the process and setting appropriate expectations while achieving the best results. We understand that collaborative divorces are an important dispute resolution tool that can truly benefit our clients.
