Ask for a Collaborative Divorce Attorney

If you are considering a divorce, ask your attorney whether he or she has received interdisciplinary collaborative training and offers the collaborative divorce option.  Why?

A collaborative divorce attorney will focus on helping you and your family rather than hurting your spouse.  He or she is committed to productive and respectful negotiations for a mutually beneficial outcome rather than conducting an all out war in the courtroom.

In fact, in the collaborative process, the attorney is contractually barred from engaging in courtroom battles; this allows each spouse to speak openly and honestly in negotiation sessions without fear that the other party’s attorney will use his or her words against him or her.  This also tends to make the collaborative process less expensive, as collaborative attorneys are not engaging in depositions and other costly litigation tactics to prepare for trial.

So if you want to end your marriage without destroying your family, ask your attorney to engage in the collaborative family law model.

    I completely agree with the sentiment of this article. If your attorney doesn’t offer Collaborative Practice or Mediation as an option for your divorce or family law matter, you need to ask him why. For more information about Collaborative Practice in the San Diego area, see http://www.bravewebermack.com/Family-Law-Overview/Collaborative-Divorce.shtml or call Attorney Shawn Weber at 858-345-1616 for a free telephone consult.
