Since the collaborative law process involves interest-based negotiation, this allows folks to explore and implement creative solutions tailored to their family’s needs.
ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) March 16, 2018
A collaborative divorce is when a couple agrees to resolve their case without going to a courtroom and having a judge make decisions for them. To educate couples who are divorcing about collaborative divorce, attorney N. Diane Holmes, founder of the N. Diane Holmes, P.A. Family Law Group, lists the following three benefits:
No. 1: Open and productive communication. In the collaborative law process, the couple, together with their attorneys and a neutral financial professional and a neutral mental health professional, make a commitment to reach an agreement by open and productive communication. “Interest-based negotiation is the hallmark of the collaborative law process,” noted Holmes, who is consistently ranked as a Florida “Super Lawyer.”
No. 2: Saves the family both money and time. “Furthermore, information is shared and options considered in a private setting,” added Holmes. “Since the collaborative law process involves interest-based negotiation, this allows folks to explore and implement creative solutions tailored to their family’s needs.”
No. 3: Collaborative divorce is not mediation. “The collaborative team made up of the couple, their respective attorneys, a neutral mental health and a neutral financial professional work closely together to reach a resolution without using any part of the judicial process to make decisions for the family,” concluded Holmes.
