Wheaton Collaborative Law Attorney

DuPage County Law Firm Assisting Clients With Collaborative Divorce

West Chicago Collaborative Divorce Lawyer

When a couple decides to end their marriage, they will likely be at odds over how to resolve the many issues that arise as they go about separating their lives from each other. However, litigating these disputes in court can be incredibly expensive and time consuming, and if divorcing spouses are able to work together to settle their differences, they can avoid many of the financial and emotional costs of a contentious divorce.

Collaborative law is one of the key ways that the divorce lawyers of Anderson and Associates, P.C. help our clients reach amicable divorce settlements. In this process, both spouses agree to work together with their respective attorneys to come to an agreement without the need for litigation. By taking a cooperative approach and being open to compromise, a divorcing couple can work toward a result that is satisfactory to both parties.

Advantages of Collaborative Divorce

By avoiding the costs that come with litigation, spouses who use collaborative law are able to save a great deal of money during the divorce process and complete their divorce much more quickly and efficiently. They will also avoid the emotional consequences of contentious disputes over issues such as the allocation of parental responsibility, child support, spousal maintenance, and the division of marital property. If the services of any outside experts such as accountants or child custody specialists are needed, the parties will agree to split the costs of these experts.

Collaborative divorce also encourages cooperation by all parties. The spouses and their attorneys will sign a "no court" agreement that requires the attorneys to withdraw from the case if negotiations break down and litigation becomes necessary. This ensures that rather than aggressively advocating for their clients' desires, attorneys will work to help both parties compromise and reach a settlement.

When the collaborative divorce process is complete and the parties have reached an agreement on all outstanding issues, they will be able to present this agreement to the court and finalize their divorce decree. This simple, uncontested court procedure allows divorcing spouses to complete the process in a more efficient manner.
