Northern Virginia Collaborative Law Attorney
When most people think of divorce, they think of an aggressive and unpleasant fight over finances, property, and custody or time sharing (visitation) in a court setting. This process, known as
divorce litigation, is not the only option. Two spouses seeking divorce may choose to opt for Collaborative divorce, allowing them to communicate and come to an agreement on their own, outside of court, with the guidance and counsel of a team of professionals in addition to their attorney.
Benefits of Collaborative Divorce
When two spouses opt for this Collaborative process, they are required to sign an agreement stating that they will not pursue the litigation process for divorce (except for pursuing an uncontested divorce after a settlement is reached). Should they attempt to do so, the attorneys working with them will be discharged and unable to aid in the litigation. Collaborative divorce is a much more personal and calm process than litigation. The two spouses have the ability to make decisions between themselves regarding their finances, property distribution, custody, time sharing (visitation rights),
child support, and everything else relating to the dissolution of their marriage. Their attorneys and other team members are there for the purpose of counsel and assistance throughout the Collaborative process.
