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 to your family are addressed
