Through a collaborative divorce, couples are able to come to an agreement outside of the courtroom. When a couple has control over their future, they are usually happier with the results because their issues are not decided by a judge. Collaborative divorce is different than mediation and is fast becoming a popular way for couples to end their relationship in a quick and cost-effective manner. Through collaborative divorce, couples use separate counsel that will work together in order to come to an agreement. When an agreement has been reached, the court will review all divorce issues and judge on the matter. If you are interested in the collaborative divorce process, contact Debra F. Schneider, Esq. for legal advice or to retain representation that will advocate for your interests.
