Irvine Collaborative Divorce Attorneys
Helping Families in Orange County, CA through Collaborative Law
Divorce is one of the most difficult and stressful life events that most people will ever experience. While most people hope to get through the process as quickly, smoothly, and cost-effectively as possible, they often are not sure what options they have. Collaborative divorce is one option that helps people resolve their divorce more effectively and in a more timely manner.
Collaborative divorce allows individuals to work with their spouse and their lawyer to resolve their issues in a more amicable, cost-effective manner. If you are considering collaborative divorce, the family law attorneys at Kirk & Toberty, LLP can help you understand your options and make the right decision for you and your family.
What Is Collaborative Divorce?
Collaborative divorce is an alternative to traditional litigation that allows parties to resolve their divorce without going to court. In a collaborative divorce, the parties and their attorneys work together to reach an agreement that addresses all of their issues. The parties work with their attorneys to draft an agreement that reflects their agreement and then they sign it. In contrast, in a contested divorce, the parties' attorneys argue in court over the issues that they do not agree on.
Benefits of Collaborative Divorce
One of the biggest benefits of collaborative divorce is that it can save parties time, money, and emotional and physical stress. Since collaborative divorce is less adversarial and parties do not have to go to court to argue over their issues, the process is much less stressful and time-consuming. Parties can resolve their divorce in as little as a few months as opposed to the several years it would take to get a divorce in court. Collaborative divorce also saves parties a great deal of money because they do not have to pay for attorneys' fees to litigate their divorce and they do not have to pay court fees.
Collaborative divorce does not work for every couple, but it is an option that can make the divorce process much less stressful and time-consuming if the parties are amenable to it. If you and your spouse are interested in resolving your divorce in this manner, the attorneys at Kirk & Toberty, LLP can help you understand your options and make the right decision for you and your family.
