The Advantages of Collaborative Divorce: Why it Can WorkOur clients often find that, by sitting down and resolving issues, they can reduce the cost of divorce as well as the impact on the children involved. Collaborative divorce also gives them more control over critical issues. It is also more private and avoids potentially embarrassing pleadings or motions being in a court file. Further, instead of waiting for a judge’s decisions, they can make those decisions for themselves.Collaborative divorce only works when the parties are willing to talk. The parties attempt to resolve their situation by sitting across the table with their attorney present with them. At Stange Law Firm, PC, we are dedicated to straightforward representation in collaborative divorce that works to our clients’ advantage.
We also use mediation techniques as well as other alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve matters quickly and effectively for our clients. These practical solutions save families money and reduce the stress that a divorce can bring on a family.
