Portland Collaborative Divorce Attorney
An Alternative Divorce Process
Collaborative divorce is a form of alternative dispute resolution, which
involves a process designed to achieve agreement on every aspect of a
divorce settlement without involving the court. The two parties each retain
their own Portland divorce attorney and will sit down together with counsel
and other experts to work out their divorce agreement. Neither party is
represented; instead, they have an attorney to advise and guide them through
the process of drafting a divorce agreement.
Benefits of Collaborative Divorce
Collaborative divorce is typically more amicable than contested divorce
cases. Collaborative divorce can be accomplished on the client's own
schedule. All matters, including everything from property division to
child custody and child support, are resolved by communication and mutual
agreement and a legal divorce settlement is drafted from those decisions.
The collaborative divorce process is not right for every situation, but
it can be a less stressful and more respectful option for couples who
are looking for a more personal, amicable divorce.
