Peaceful Marriage Dissolution

Making Big Life Decisions with Our Guidance
Collaborative divorce is only suitable for couples who are in agreement on getting a divorce in the first place. This willingness to work together to resolve all legal matters can sometimes be a serious source of doubt for people, as it may indicate some form of remaining compatibility. At our law firm, we never want to rush someone into a decision as huge as ending their marriage, and we can explain your legal options thoroughly so you understand the choices you are making.
If you do proceed with your collaborative divorce, you will need to consider:
- Child support
- Child custody
- Property division
- Debt division
Both parties must negotiate mutually and accept agreements without taking matters to court, such as through divorce mediation. They must also communicate openly and share input throughout the entire process. Each solution that is good for one must be good for the other as well.
Collaborative Divorce Vs. Contested Divorce
When specific matters surrounding your divorce cannot be agreed upon readily, a collaborative divorce might not be the answer anymore. Instead, courtroom intervention will become necessary to resolve the dispute. This is known as having a contested divorce, which is a polar opposite to collaborative divorces in many ways. You will each decide what you want with the major issues of your divorce and family life, retain a divorce lawyer, and craft an argument to be used in court to convince the judge to see things your way. It should also be noted that even uncontested divorces need to go through the court, so even they are separate from collaborative approaches.
Personalized Attention & Trusted, Experienced Support
Overall, a collaborative divorce minimizes the amount of emotional trauma and stress that you and your entire family will endure during a divorce. Not only will it increase the chance of everyone remaining content but it also cuts back on expensive court fees and divorce litigation costs. As caring and compassionate Raleigh family law Attorney, we often want our clients to consider this process of dissolution first, for their own sake. After all, working together with your spouse, this one last time, may build a bridge of friendship that you, they, and your shared children will appreciate for the rest of your lives.
