What Is Collaborative Law?

How a Skilled Divorce Lawyer in Des Moines Can Help You

Unlike traditional approaches to divorce, collaborative law allows a couple to reach the final terms of the divorce amicably with the help of attorneys outside of the courtroom. This method saves time, money, and emotional energy, allowing a divorcing couple to reach closure much more quickly and get back to living life as normally as possible. With collaborative law, it is possible to end your marriage, divide property, determine custody, and agree on spousal support and child custody both civilly and efficiently.

A collaborative divorce is characterized by the following factors:

  • No court documents are filed until the collaborative process is complete
  • Attorneys on both sides are trained in collaborative law
  • Both parties must agree on all aspects of the process, including attorney fees, confidentiality, disclosure of information, etc.
  • Either party may consult professionals such as financial advisors or therapists in order to aid the process and decision-making
