COLLABORATIVE

DIVORCE

Jersey Shore Collaborative Law Group offers a structured process that provides an alternative to going to court. The choices a divorcing couple makes at the beginning of their negotiations may determine the way their divorce turns out, the kind of relationship they have in the future, and how their children adjust.

WHAT IS A

COLLABORATIVE

DIVORCE

Collaborative divorce is an alternative form of dispute resolution, designed to foster the resolution of divorce and family law related issues respectfully and equitably, without court intervention.  Like mediation and arbitration, it takes place outside of the purview of the court system, with the goal of reaching a fair settlement, but without the pressure and uncertainties which accompany litigation.

Collaborative practice is different from other approaches to divorce in that it promotes respect and enables spouses to be in control of the divorce process.  The goal is to address each couples unique concerns, and advance each party's interest without reference to the often arbitrary; one size fits all, resolutions available through the Superior Court.

ADVANTAGES OF A

The heart of Collaborative Practice is to offer you and your spouse or partner the support, protection, and guidance of your own lawyers without going to court. Additionally, Collaborative Practice allows you the benefit of child and financial specialists, divorce coaches and other professionals all working together on your team.

In Collaborative Practice, core elements form your contractual commitments, which are to:

  • Negotiate a mutually acceptable settlement without having courts decide issues.
  • Maintain communication and information sharing.
  • Create shared solutions acknowledging the highest priorities of all.
