While some divorce cases are resolved through trial, many others are resolved through negotiation, mediation, or what is known as a collaborative divorce. In a collaborative divorce, attorneys help their clients understand their options and make informed choices in an effort to come up with an agreement that works for both parties. While the idea of resolving divorces through collaboration instead of litigation may seem contrary to what divorce is all about, it is the right solution for many couples who choose this alternative path.

Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time

Parents who divorce want the best for their children. Unfortunately, in a traditional, adversarial divorce proceeding, one party’s gain is often seen as another’s loss. Parties often jockey for position to get more parenting time than the other, sole parental responsibilities, or greater awards of child support. Along the way, the idea of what is best for a couple’s children may fall by the wayside. Collaborative divorce enables parents to structure parenting time and divide or share parental responsibilities in a way that meets their family’s unique needs. The interests of children are better served by parenting time and parenting responsibilities agreements that their parents designed and agreed to on their own, rather than orders issued by a judge who has no personal knowledge of the family. Parents are also more likely to be successful in sticking to the terms of a parenting agreement that they designed themselves and chose to sign off on.
