It’s a question that is not easy to answer. There are so many shades of gray, and it’s rarely a cut-and-dry decision. There’s a lot involved in deciding which divorce method to choose. We suggest researching all of the options before you decide.
Here are the 4 divorce options that are available to you and your spouse if you live in California:
- Traditional negotiation/litigation
- Pro Se divorce
Today, we will explore the first two options.
A traditional litigated court divorce is often costly. It takes a great deal of time to finalize. When it’s all completed, the family is often left in emotional tatters because sensitive information has become publicized and the children are often affected by all the fighting that they witness along the way.
Our team at A Better Divorce works with couples seeking a divorce through the no-court collaborative divorce process. It is the most time and cost-effective and helps couples peacefully resolve their issues while working with the family unit’s emotional wellbeing during the process.
Not only is it a more respectful process, but it also is a way to keep your private matters away from prying eyes.
During the collaborative process, you and your partner have access to a team of experts such as attorneys, neutral financials, divorce coaches, mental health experts and child specialists who work with the children in your marriage to ensure they can heal and move forward once the family dynamics have changed.
As the collaborative divorce process moves along with the end goal of the couples collaborating on the final agreement, our team encourages problem solving, win-win negotiations and agreements that are agreeable with all family members.
