What are the positives of a collaborative divorce?

If you're wondering if there's a way to make divorce an easier, less stressful process, you're not alone. With more and more research supporting the fact that a high-conflict divorce isn't good for anybody, especially any children involved, figuring out how to divorce calmly and civilly is becoming a popular topic of conversation. Luckily, collaborative divorce can help you do just that.

-- You must communicate with the other party. While it's normal to want to distance yourself from your soon-to-be ex as much as possible, the truth is that this person is going to be a major part of your life for a long time to come if you have children together. Even after they turn 18, there were still be college graduations, marriages and births to attend together. Learning to communicate with your ex after your relationship has ended is a valuable skill, and the collaborative process fosters it.

-- You stay in control of your divorce. It's unsettling to have all of the decisions concerning your assets and children being made by a complete stranger. Yet that's exactly what happens when a divorce has to go to trial. By working together through the collaborative process, you and your ex can keep the control and make decisions how you see fit.

-- It's quicker. By the time most people get divorced, they've spent months or even years trying to save their marriage. The last thing you want to do is go through a difficult, high-conflict divorce for another year or so. A collaborative divorce is usually much quicker and less stressful than a traditional divorce.
