In this Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, attorney Kevin O'Flaherty of O'Flaherty Law discusses the differences between Collaborative and Cooperative Divorce.
Collaborative Divorce and Cooperative Divorce have the potential to prevent in-court litigation of the issues that must be resolved during a divorce including asset division, maintenance awards, allocation of parenting time and responsibility, and child support payments. If successful, this will make your divorce significantly more cost-effective. It will prevent the stress that can arise from contentious litigation.
Agreements reached out of court through the Collaborative Divorce or Cooperative Divorce process tend to be more comprehensive than those reached as a result of trial.and are also less likely to lead to post-divorce litigation between the parties.
Our Illinois family law attorneys have extensive experience in Collaborative Divorce, Cooperative Divorce, mediation, and traditional divorce. We will help you find the most comprehensive, and cost-effective solution for you.

Family mediation is a method to resolving different family law issues
Mediation is an undervalued tool to help solve family law related issues outside of court settings which allows parties to attempt to come to agreements on family related issues. This prevents the parties from having to litigate these issues in court and saves money on legal fees. In a family mediation, the parties to a divorce resolve issues with the help of a professional mediator. As long as both sides are willing, this option is a preferred method that allows our Illinois family law attorneys the chance to save our clients money and time.
