Understanding Collaborative Divorce
Collaborative divorce is a way of dissolving a marriage by using cooperative strategies rather than adversarial techniques and litigation. In a collaborative divorce, by agreement of their clients, the attorneys are disqualified from participating in any ensuing adversarial proceedings and will withdraw from their representation in such an event. Thus, if a party wants the court to decide a matter, everyone must hire a new Carmel collaborative divorce attorney.Collaborative divorce starts with an initial conference with a prospective client where the attorney and prospective client discuss the case. After learning more about the prospective client’s circumstance, the attorney advises whether the case may be appropriate for the collaborative divorce process. This initial conference outlines the non-adversarial methodologies and explores how the other party would find another collaborative attorney. It is important to keep in mind that collaborative divorce requires a high level of commitment and participation by the parties. Without a team-oriented approach, the process is unlikely to be successful.
