Centereach, NY (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
For couples seeking a “fair” divorce, the options may seem overwhelming. Finding a method that allows each party to express their opinions while protecting their rights and assets outside of a courtroom for some could be a complicated process. Recently, an article from Forbes.com from June 26th, 2013, titled "Divorce: Who gets the Air Miles?",discussed the growing issue surrounding the division of credit card points, miles, and other benefits associated with card memberships. Suffolk county divorce attorney, David Vallone shared his years of collaborative divorce insight on tackling the division of assets fairly.
Despite emotional feelings towards one’s spouse, most couples would agree to a divorce process that is fair in dividing assets, and cost effective. For couples seeking an out of court option to resolving the division of property, financials, benefits from credit companies, a membership programs, David Vallone suggests collaborative divorce.
Collaborative divorce is similar to mediation in that it allows the terms of the divorce to be discussed and negotiated in private, but differs in that it allows each party to have an attorney present, along with other professionals such as financial experts and divorce coaches to help them focus on the process. Using collaborative divorce as a means to divide assets allows each party to present their own ideas for distributing assets, while being mindful of how a court would likely distribute them if the case went to trial.
“Using collaborative divorce to divide assets that may need more attention like credit card points, travel miles, and other benefit programs can ensure that all parties understand the terms, and get their fair portion,” states Mr. Vallone. As the terms and conditions imposed by the credit card companies and the airlines for division of credit card points and other membership benefits seem to change daily, collaborative divorce provides a forum where the parties can discuss the issues and come to a reasonable agreement as to the valuation and division of these assets
