When couples enter into the collaborative process, both spouses and their respective attorneys, financial neutrals, divorce coaches, and mental health experts agree to resolve their marital issues respectfully, encouraging the family unit to be separate and intact once the divorce is finalized.
Often highly emotionally charged conversations occur during a divorce, and this type of rhetoric can lead to a court-litigated separation. This can do irreputable harm to the family. Court divorce can leave lifetime scars that often times can’t be healed.
Emotionally charged conversations happen during divorce proceedings. With the collaborative divorce process, a divorce coach who is a mental health professional can intervene to pull together the main perspectives and goals of the team, steering the divorce away from court with the goal of perpetuating a more respectful approach.
The collaborative divorce process empowers clients to make decisions in the best interests of their families. With this process, clients often develop creative solutions to issues and problems. And as a result, the family can begin to heal and move forward as a healthy, separate and intact family unit.
Court divorces are based on a win-lose mindset and families get torn apart. The collaborative divorce considers honesty and transparency with everyone on the team, everyone is held accountable, and the clients come first. This process can be very transformative for families.
The collaborative team of professionals and the clients often can find solutions that they would not have otherwise come up with through the traditional court process. It’s a win for everyone involved, including the children.
