Is Collaborative Law Right For Your Divorce Or Custody Matter?
Contested family law litigation focused on beating the other party at all costs is never the best approach, particularly in cases involving children. When both parties to a family law case are dedicated to resolving their disputes in ways that are both fair and sensitive to the unique needs of all involved, our attorneys at Harrington Brewster Mahoney Smits, P.C., can help resolve their family law dispute through the collaborative law process. Whether you are going through a divorce or other family law conflict, collaborative law offers a structured and flexible alternative to the traditional resolution process overseen by the court system.
Making Decisions Together For The Good Of The Whole
Our attorneys have extensive collaborative law training and practice. Deeply involved in the Colorado Collaborative Law Professionals group, they are dedicated to helping clients resolve their disputes without expensive and time-consuming litigation. Collaborative law allows people to set their own time frames and better control the outcomes of their situations while having legal counsel help them through the divorce process.
Collaborative law is an open, honest process. Both parties sign agreements to resolve their dispute without court. Working with relevant experts, such as financial and mental health professionals, lawyers and their clients come to solutions that will benefit everyone both now and in the future. There is a healthy respect and consideration for all parties’ interests. In fact, all attorneys that are involved in any collaborative law case have an ethical obligation to encourage the clients to consider the needs of the entire family.
The Many Benefits Of Collaborative Divorce
Our lawyers have years of family law experience. For many spouses, their relationship with each other will not end after divorce, so it is important to learn effective communication, especially when children are involved. In collaborative law, coaches provide the tools needed to continue as a productive and effective parent in the years following separation.
It is generally not in a divorcing couple’s best interests to engage in a lengthy battle regarding every decision. Collaborative divorce assists families in resolving fundamental issues far less destructively.
