What Is Collaborative Law?
In traditional divorce proceedings, the governing standard is simply "winning." Couples strive for the results that they believe to be fair, but in order to achieve those results, they are almost encouraged to find fault with the other party. The process is by nature contentious, adding to a situation that is already stressful enough.
A collaborative divorce is different. Collaborative law provides couples with a concrete method of avoiding conflict in a confidential environment. The couple can achieve results under the principle of full and open disclosure that seeks to minimize disputes and contention.
Collaborative law is something more couples are using to speed up the divorce process. It requires viewing the divorce in a problem-solving and troubleshooting frame of mind rather than considering it a battle to be won. In other words, the people involved opt to negotiate instead of litigate.
We are proud to offer clients representation in the area of collaborative law. We are here to help you avoid court and achieve an amicable divorce. Speak with Phillip M. Herr, Attorney at Law, to learn more about this method and the benefits of collaborative divorce.

Discuss Your Options with Phillip M. Herr, Attorney at Law
How the process works involves each party hiring his or her own attorney. Each spouse meets with his or her attorney without the other spouse present. During this meeting, a spouse will inform his or her lawyer what his or her ideal settlement will be. Then, both spouses and their attorneys meet together on a regular basis until both sides agree on the solution. Collaborative law may also involve a communications coach to serve as a mediator between the parties.
