Pasadena Attorney for Collaborative Divorces
Understanding the Collaborative Divorce Process
In California, divorcing parties who are looking for a cleaner option than
battling a divorce in court often are able to look towards collaborative
divorce as their option. Under Collaborative Law, both parties are thus
able to retain a lawyer to help protect their interests. Unlike
mediation, under Collaborative Law, there is not one neutral party, but rather gives
each party highly-effective and comprehensive legal representation.
During this process, neither side is able to threaten to go to court. Instead, both parties must work together to come to an amicable agreement on issues such as alimony, child support and custody. If the case evolves to a point where a party is threatening to take the other to court, then both lawyers are released and are banned from helping the party again through a similar process. Those who are looking for a civilized divorce and would like to keep a friendly relationship with the other party often turn towards this option. Collaborative divorce is also an excellent option to help protect and shield children from a bitter court battle.
