For New York residents looking to end their marriages, some may hope that they are able to move through the proceedings without the need for constant conflict. If both parties involved hold this hope, they may be candidates for approaching divorce in an amicable manner. Collaborative law could allow interested parties to move forward and have more control over their process.
Collaborative divorce continues to be a relatively under-used process. This issue may be because many parties do not know much about the option. With this method, both individuals work with their attorneys and each other in order to come to agreeable divorce settlement terms. This process does not use litigation but rather out-of-court meetings attended by all necessary parties. The emphasis is on working together to achieve a mutually satisfactory result.
