Collaborative Divorce / Collaborative Law
A collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial approach to resolving disputes without using the Court to assist or intervene in a case.
The parties use a team of professionals to help them reach an amicable out of court resolution. The goal of a collaborative case is to
focus on the needs of the family while focusing on a win-win mentality as opposed to the win-lose nature that traditional
litigation often entails. The professionals all understand that a well thought out settlement of the issues in the case
is what the goal is for the parties (and their children if there are kids) and timing milestones are usually set at each meeting to
ensure that the case moves along in a timely and appropriate manner.
Each party will have an attorney representing their interests and facilitating the legal aspects of their case, in addition to
a therapist or counseling professional to help each party. The professionals involved can also include a neutral financial expert
and a cooperative parenting specialist to assist the parties with the custodial and parenting time aspects of the case.
While it may sound expensive to have all these professionals involved, studies show that often times a collaborative case is
ultimately far less financially draining on a family and the parties than a more traditional litigated case.
The collaborative process is not for everyone, but if works for the parties it is certainly a preferable route to go or at the very
least consider. Mr. Sarif has been trained in collaborative law and he can discuss if such a case and the collaborative process is right
