Collaborative divorce may offer benefits in New York

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.

Of course, some individuals may not see this option as feasible due to feelings of hurt or anger associated with the ending of their marriages. However, rather than making rash decisions and heading straight for litigation, parties may wish to give themselves time to fully consider their best dissolution methods. In some cases, individuals may see that they would rather have more say in the process, find a willingness to compromise and face their divorce in a civil manner. 

Collaborative divorce can offer many benefits to New York residents who truly want to make the process work. Therefore, interested parties may want to find out more information on this option to determine whether it could potentially suit their circumstances. Consulting with experienced attorneys could allow individuals to gain useful and applicable information for their specific cases.
