Collaborative Divorce

Understanding Relocation Laws

Collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial alternative to traditional litigation, where both parties, along with their respective attorneys, commit to resolving disputes outside of court. This process fosters a spirit of cooperation and aims to find mutually beneficial solutions while minimizing the emotional and financial toll often associated with divorce.

The Collaborative Divorce Process

1. Initial Consultation

The collaborative divorce process begins with an initial consultation where Lisa Beth Older and her team assess the unique circumstances of your case. This meeting provides an opportunity to discuss the collaborative approach, set expectations, and determine if this method is suitable for your situation.

2. Team Formation

In a collaborative divorce, each party is represented by their own attorney, and additional professionals such as financial experts, therapists, and child specialists may be involved as needed. The collaborative team works together to address legal, financial, and emotional aspects of the divorce.

3. Transparent Communication

Open and transparent communication is at the core of collaborative divorce. The parties commit to sharing information honestly, and regular meetings are held to discuss concerns, interests, and potential resolutions. This promotes a cooperative atmosphere, fostering understanding and trust between the parties.

4. Negotiation and Agreement

The collaborative process encourages negotiation and compromise to reach a fair and comprehensive settlement. Lisa Beth Older, as an experienced collaborative divorce attorney, guides her clients through these discussions, ensuring their interests are represented and helping them make informed decisions about their future.

5. Finalizing the Agreement

Once an agreement is reached, the attorneys assist in drafting the necessary legal documents to formalize the terms. The final agreement is then presented to the court for approval, providing a legally binding resolution to the divorce.
