Amicable Divorce Through Collaborative Law

Collaborative law in divorce is a no-court method of resolving divorces. A divorce is always difficult, but it doesn’t have to be hostile and combative. With an amicable divorce through collaborative law, couples work together to come up with creative and mutually beneficial solutions to their family-related problems. Instead of the win-lose outcome common in so many divorces, parties use collaboration to try and achieve a win-win result: more importantly, a solution that works for each particular family.

In normal divorce litigation, the family court judge has control of deciding where the children will live, who will keep the home, and other issues relating to the divorce. Couples who choose to use the collaborative process for their divorce are able to take control of sensitive issues such as child custody, support, and division of marital assets. The collaborative law attorneys at Vetrano | Vetrano & Feinman LLC have been specially trained to help divorcing couples reach decisions in the best interests of the entire family through collaborative law.

What is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative law is a no-court, non-combative method of obtaining a divorce. Both the husband and wife hire attorneys who are specially trained in collaborative law. The husband and wife both commit to reaching a divorce agreement without going to court. By agreeing to work together, the spouses and their attorneys create a team atmosphere as opposed to the adversarial relationship, which often results when issues are resolved in the courtroom.

The Benefits of Collaborative Law

The collaborative law process enables couples to come together with their attorneys and work together to achieve an agreement that works best for everyone involved. The issues important to both spouses are considered so that the couple can reach family-centric solutions. The family law attorneys at Vetrano | Vetrano & Feinman LLC believe that the collaborative approach is far more beneficial for clients than traditional divorce litigation or the mediation process. In mediation, couples come together to work with an objective mediator to achieve resolution of divorce-related matters. The mediator can give no advice to the parties nor advance a party’s position. However, in the collaborative process, there is the added benefit of having experienced, informative legal representation. A collaborative lawyer works for you to ensure:

  • You understand your rights and your obligations
  • Your interests are protected
  • All marital assets and property are disclosed
  • Real estate, pensions, stock options, royalties, and other property is properly valued
  • All necessary and important issues for your family are addressed
