Collaborative law may be a sound option for some divorcees

Although divorce can be an emotion-filled process, some couples in Gig Harbor find that they want to cut ties as smoothly and amicably as possible. This may especially be the case if the couple has children, whom they want to protect during the divorce process. That being said, even couples without children may want to seek an amicable divorce. Couples in these situations may be interested in learning more about options they may have other than litigation, including collaborative law.

Through collaborative law, each spouse will work together, with the help of individually retained attorneys, to resolve their divorce legal issues, such as spousal support, child support, child custody and property division. Collaborative law may be good for some couples, as it sets the stage for open and honest communication and cooperation, which may serve couples well as they settle their divorce, particularly if they have children.

Divorce is a sensitive issue that needs to be handled with care. Both sides to a divorce may want to be represented by an attorney, if possible. After all, each side's rights and interests should be upheld throughout the divorce process. While collaborative law involves mutual decision-making and transparency, it is important that such negotiations are fair to both spouses.

Since 1978, the Law Offices of Jeffrey A. Robinson, P.S., has been helping couples resolve their family law issues. They have led many individuals through the collaborative divorce process, but also recognize that in some cases litigation is preferred over other methods of dispute resolution. Gig Harbor couples seeking a divorce may find the firm's overview of collaborative law of interest.
