Massachusetts couples may want to consider collaborative divorce

For Massachusetts individuals considering ending their marriages, there are about as many different approaches as there are couples. Just like every marriage is different, so is every divorce. Many families, though, are choosing to explore a newer option known as collaborate divorce.

This legal process is growing in popularity for its less adversarial approach than the traditional process. All divorces have the same end result of a court order outlining the numerous issues of divorce, including property division, child support, alimony and more. However, a collaborative divorce differs from the more traditional methods because it involves each spouse agreeing to recognize the other's needs instead of only concentrating on his or her own.

Collaborative divorce can work especially well for families with children because both spouses agree to resolve divorce issues without litigation. This entails convening with each other and the respective lawyers as many times as it takes to reach an agreement on the relevant issues. The process also may involve meetings with accountants, therapists or psychologists, financial advisors, and other professionals to help all parties involved find solutions that best fit all of the family members' needs. This generally makes for a less stressful process overall.

While collaborative law can be a great approach for some divorcing couples, every situation is different. Anyone in Massachusetts who is considering divorce or separation might benefit from consulting with a family law attorney; he or she can offer advice about the various legal options and avenues available. The knowledgeable legal counsel and representation of an experienced divorce lawyer can prove invaluable during this often complicated and stressful time.
