But did you know there may be a better way to reach a mutual agreement in a calm, dignified and fair way for all involved?
The Collaborative Process
The collaborative divorce process is a way that married couples can divorce amicably while preserving the family unit and developing a solid co-parenting plan geared towards the future.
But what does that look like, and how is it outlined in the final divorce agreements? What should you look for to make sure your final settlement is reasonable and fair for all?
A collaborative divorce agreement addresses many different parts. Here are a few of them:
1. Co-parenting plan
a. Addresses how the parents will raise the children in a cohesive, united front
2. Vacation plans
a. Details how vacation custody will be handled
3. Future disputes
a. Outlines how post-settlement disputes will be resolved
4. Both parties agree to take a “no court” approach to finalizing any disputes
5. Mutually agreed upon points – all financials, spousal support, and parenting plan, along with other areas that were discussed in the collaborative team meetings
When you eliminate the contentious and aggressive court process, you have an opportunity to draft a straight-forward divorce agreement that is mutually agreed upon by both parties.
