The odds are greater for a happier and healthier post-divorce life when the divorce process has minimal stress and animosity.
A collaborative divorce will help couples with children co-parent more effectively. Co-parenting is not effective if either party still harbors anger, which is a mindset prevalent in traditional divorce that focuses on an adversarial process.
With a collaborative divorce, the spouses can identify needs and goals that are important to them. The spouses and attorneys come together to forge an agreement that deals with those goals. They usually come up with creative solutions that benefit both individuals.
