Collaborative Divorce in Denver: Another Way to End Your Marriage

July 27, 2023

Collaborative Divorce

Divorce is a difficult and emotional process, but it doesn't have to be adversarial. Collaborative divorce is a process that allows you and your spouse to work together to end your marriage in a peaceful and respectful way.

What is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative divorce is a process where you and your spouse each have your own attorney. Then, your attorneys can work together to help you reach an agreement. This means that you and your spouse will be able to communicate directly with each other, and your attorneys will be there to facilitate the conversation and help you reach a mutually agreeable solution. An amicable divorce is not the same as a collaborative divorce but it can be a type of amicable divorce. 

Benefits of Working Together in a Divorce

There are many benefits to collaborative divorce. First, it can save you time and court appearances. Traditional divorces often involve long, drawn-out court battles, but collaborative divorces can be completed much more quickly. This is because you and your spouse are working together to reach an agreement, so there is no need for a judge to make decisions for you.

Second, collaborative divorce can help you maintain a positive relationship with your spouse. Even if you are not going to stay married, you will still need to co-parent your children, so it is important to be able to communicate effectively with each other. Collaborative divorce can help you learn how to communicate with each other in a respectful and productive way. 

Third, it can help you protect your assets. In traditional divorces, assets can be divided by the court. This can take time and can be a complicated process. We highly recommend you contact an experienced Divorce Attorney to protect your rights. In a collaborative divorce, you and your spouse can agree on how to divide your assets, which can help you expedite the process and ensure the assets you need go with you.

How Does Collaborative Divorce Work?

Collaborative divorce is a process that can involve these four phases:

  1. Orientation: This is the first meeting between you, your spouse, and your attorneys. This meeting is an opportunity to learn about cooperative divorce and to decide if it is the right option for you.
  2. Negotiation: This is the phase where you and your spouse will work together to reach an agreement on all of the issues related to your divorce. This includes issues such as child custody, child support, alimony, and property division.
  3. Drafting and Signing of Agreements: Once you have reached an agreement, your attorneys will draft the necessary documents. You will then review and sign the divorce documents.
  4. Resolution: Once the documents are signed, your divorce will be finalized.

Who Is Collaborative Divorce Right For?

This type of divorce is right for couples who are willing to work together to end their marriage in a peaceful and respectful way. It is also right for couples who want to protect their assets and who want to avoid the unneeded stress and full process of a traditional divorce.
