In this article, our O’Flaherty Collaborative Divorce attorneys explain the two alternative options to litigating the issues of your divorce in court, which are Collaborative Law Divorce and Cooperative Divorce.  In both cases, the two parties come to an agreement to freely exchange information in a respectful manner outside of the courtroom.  If the negotiation process of a Collaborative Divorce is unsuccessful, the attorneys for both parties must withdraw.  If you are eager to save your family unnecessary stress and money throughout the divorce process, you may want to consider either a Collaborative Law Divorce or a Cooperative Divorce.
