Is A Collaborative Divorce Faster Than A Regular Divorce?

As a Portland Oregon divorce lawyer trained in both collaborative divorce and litigation, I hear a lot of process questions about which dispute resolution method is faster. The speed at which you can get through either process is fact dependent, however, with willing and motivated parties, collaborative divorce can be faster and more efficient. With collaborative divorce, you avoid being subject to the court’s schedule and potential multiple court dates, and can instead set your own schedule for how fast the case goes. The caveat is that the collaborative model is built on cooperation and consensus, and if there is no agreement, the process can stall out.
