How Collaborative Family Law Reduces The Hostility Of Divorce

We see Oregonians seeking divorce turn to collaborative divorce for a variety of reasons. For some, they choose the collaborative approach because they want to maintain control of the divorce process instead of leaving the decisions up to a judge. Others simply wish to avoid the adversarial divorce they saw their parents have. Conventional divorces can often be emotionally draining and difficult, especially for any children involved. Collaborative divorce seeks to avoid the hostility of conventional divorce by giving equal consideration to the needs of both spouses. It also keeps the needs of the children at the forefront of the divorce process. Collaborative divorce attorneys negotiate for the best outcome while remaining respectful and cooperative. The parties focus on openly communicating and sharing information. The collaborative process focuses on amicably reaching a settlement while avoiding litigation. In short, people who choose collaborative divorce strive for a win-win situation instead of struggling for a win-lose situation. Collaborative family law is an attractive choice for those who want a more positive outcome after a divorce.
