Divorce disputes are often best resolved when spouses work together to find solutions rather than fighting against one another. Collaborative divorce allows divorcing couples to work with experts, usually through mediation, and negotiate their differences together. This results in a better situation for all parties involved rather than more hostility.

The advantages of resolving your marriage through collaborative divorce are that you can:
The collaborative divorce process combines the knowledge of experts in law, mental health, child psychology, and other relevant fields. Instead of a judge making decisions for you, a team of experts can guide you through these complex issues and help you make those decisions for yourself.
While no outcome is ever guaranteed in a legal matter, collaborative divorce can give you the tools you need to achieve your legal goals while sparing yourself and your children from an acrimonious legal dispute.
In traditional divorce litigation, any matters that have not been agreed upon are presented to a judge. The judge then makes a final, binding decision. The disadvantage to this is that the judge's decision is binding, and any changes to the judge's decision must be handled by an appeal. The process of traditional divorce is lengthy and can be unpredictable, although in some cases, it is the only way of ensuring that your needs are met in a contentious divorce.
