Collaborative divorce can be in the family's best interest

The lines have been drawn. Battle plans have been put into place and it is time to take action. For many California families, the month of March is the time when the decision to end the marriage is made. In fact, March has become one of the primary months in which couples decide to file for divorce.

For many couples, each decision in the divorce process is a battle. Husband and wife each want things a certain way, and they are relentless in their pursuit of this. Each decision regarding property division, child custody, child support, alimony and more is filled with dissent. Sometimes this thought process is necessary; however, in many cases, there are other ways to pursue the matter and actually resolve the issues with much less strife.

The concept of a collaborative divorce is becoming more prevalent. In this case, parents recognize the need to work together in the best interest of the children. They realize that it will be necessary to communicate with each other and make decisions regarding the children for many years to come. Thus, the idea of working together through the divorce process is a good first step in this direction.

In addition to being child-friendly, a collaborative divorce can actually protect assets. Rather than spending thousands of dollars litigating the divorce in the California court system, the parties -- each supported by his or her attorney -- work together to come to a reasonable settlement. In this way, the divorce is less costly financially as well as emotionally.
