Colorado Springs Collaborative Divorce Lawyer
Helping You Navigate Your Divorce with Dignity
While the end of a marriage may be emotionally trying in many ways, it may not be necessary for you and your ex to experience the combative, destructive aspects of a divorce. As an alternative to traditional litigation, collaborative divorce allows couples to dissolve their marriage with dignity and respect.
At Clawson & Clawson, LLP, we bring a wealth of experience guiding our clients through the collaborative divorce process. Our team of experienced attorneys understands the emotional complexities of ending a marriage, and we strive to provide compassionate, thorough, and personalized counsel. We believe in empowering our clients with the knowledge and tools they need to make informed decisions about their future, ensuring a fair and equitable resolution that respects the interests of all parties involved.
What is Collaborative Divorce?
Collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial approach to ending a marriage that focuses on cooperation and teamwork rather than conflict and litigation. It involves both parties and their respective attorneys working together in an open and transparent manner to negotiate the terms of their divorce. Unlike traditional litigation, collaborative divorce allows for more control over the outcome and can result in a more amicable and respectful resolution.
Why Choose Collaborative Divorce?
Collaborative divorce offers many benefits, including:
- Greater control over the outcome: Rather than leaving important decisions to a judge, collaborative divorce allows you and your ex to determine the terms of your divorce.
- More privacy: Court proceedings are public record, whereas collaborative divorce negotiations are kept confidential.
- Less stress and conflict: By working together, you can avoid the hostility and animosity that often comes with traditional litigation.
- Lower costs: Collaborative divorce generally requires fewer court appearances and legal fees, making it a more cost-effective option.
How Does Collaborative Divorce Work?
The collaborative divorce process begins with you and your spouse agreeing to use collaborative methods to resolve your divorce issues. This agreement also includes a commitment not to take your case to court. By entering into this commitment, both parties create a safe and open environment for negotiation, with the mutual goal of reaching a resolution that benefits everyone involved.
The next step involves assembling your team. Both you and your spouse will have your own attorney trained in the collaborative process.
The process of collaborative divorce typically includes the following steps:
- Initial meetings: You, your spouse, and your respective attorneys meet to discuss the issues at hand, identify concerns, and begin brainstorming solutions.
- Gathering information: All necessary financial and family information is collected openly and honestly.
- Negotiating agreements: Utilizing cooperative communication and negotiation techniques, you work towards agreements on all issues.
- Finalizing agreements: The attorneys draft the necessary legal documents once everything is agreed upon.
