Collaborative divorce is a form of alternative dispute resolution available for couples going through a divorce in Monmouth County and throughout New Jersey. You could potentially benefit from this method if you and your spouse both wanted to retain a personal attorney during your discussions but seek to reach an amicable resolution to your divorce.
Why Choose Collaborative Divorce
One of the possible reasons to approach divorce from a collaborative position would be to secure the future of your family. These divorces are typically quicker, more private, more efficient and more cordial than adversarial approaches, such as litigation. They also tend to promote a feeling of a more mutually beneficial resolution about payment of support, retirement account division, child custody scheduling and other possibly contentious issues. All of these economic and emotional benefits could lead to a better post-divorce relationship between you, your former spouse and your children.
Collaborative Divorce is a team-centered approach to divorce, wherein we emphasize the use of experts in the financial services industry, divorce coaches, co-parenting coordinators and the like to make the process more efficient and cost-effective.

Overall Benefits of Collaborative Divorce
Collaborative divorce has the advantage of being a respectful and formal dialogue, but also retaining a certain degree of flexibility. This could give you the opportunity to set a good example for your children, and set yourself and your spouse up to maintain a strong co-parenting relationship in the future. Collaborative Divorce is underscored by the understanding that you were partners—even if not good ones—throughout your marriage and you are partners in your divorce.Regardless of the path you choose, our Red Bank, NJ, practice is here to support you and your family during every step you take towards your final agreement.
