Can Collaborative Practice help reach a faster divorce settlement?

Individual circumstances control the speed of any dispute resolution process as long as a party does not engage in litigation controlled by the courts. Collaborative Practice can be one way of achieving a more direct and efficient resolution. From the start, it focuses on problem solving, not blaming or endlessly airing grievances. Full disclosure and open communications help to assure all issues are discussed in a timely manner. Parties are also freed from being beholden to the court calendar. Because a final settlement is reached out of court, parties are not kept waiting for multiple court appearances or waiting to get on a crowded schedule which happens in conventional divorce litigation. Parties can work through your divorce at the pace that best suits the parties’ and family’s needs.
