San Diego Collaborative Lawyers

Using Collaborative Law To Find Optimal Solutions

Contentious, dramatic divorces make big headlines in print and online. For couples engaged in bitter courtroom dramas, this process can be costly and exhausting. If you and your spouse can work together to resolve divorce issues, dissolving your marriage bond does not need to take place in a public setting.

In California, you have many divorce options available when you choose to end their marriage. Collaborative divorce is a type of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that is recognized for fostering a positive environment while addressing difficult issues. Elizabeth Brown, CLS-F—one of our skilled attorneys at Cage & Miles—has successfully represented women and men in collaborative divorce for years. You can depend on us to identify creative legal solutions that promote your family’s well-being.

Have questions about the divorce process? Contact Cage & Miles today at (858) 943-2060 to discuss your concerns with a member of our legal team.

What Is Collaborative Law?

Like mediation, collaborative divorce is a type of dispute resolution that gives you more control over your divorce settlement. You and your spouse can select professionals to advise you on your options and work as a team to reach a favorable result. Your custody, financial support, and property division agreements are then submitted to a family court judge for approval.

What Are The Advantages Associated With This Approach?

Collaborative divorce offers you a range of advantages over litigation, including:

  • The team-based approach: You can build a team of qualified professionals to help you make sound decisions. In addition to your attorney, who represents your interests, a mental health coach is hired by each party. Financial advisers, child psychologists, and other experts can also be jointly retained to work with the collaborative team.
  • The informal nature of the process: You will not need to follow court procedures when you are discussing the terms of financial support and other divorce-related concerns. Both spouses attend sessions with their attorneys and mental health coaches. The parties then work together with the help of the professionals to reach a fair resolution.
  • The nonconfrontational atmosphere: Litigation can be combative, pitting estranged spouses against each other in a public setting. When you choose to engage in collaborative divorce, you and your spouse commit to an approach that encourages compromise and avoids a winner-take-all mentality.

In the past, couples had limited options at their disposal when they pursued divorce or other family law matters. Collaborative law allows you to select your team and tailor your approach to suit your family’s unique circumstances.
