What Is Collaborative Divorce?

A new type of divorce has become more popular in North Carolina for couples who are interested in getting through a divorce without the acrimony: collaborative divorce. The process involves spouses and their attorneys sitting down together to work together on a settlement that is in everyone's best interests.

At Miller & Illikainen, our Fayetteville attorneys can help you resolve all aspects of your divorce — child custody, child support, property division and alimony — allowing you to move on to a new part of your life.

Remain In Control

When you think of divorce and other family law disputes, no one would blame you for thinking about people arguing and not getting along. Collaborative divorce, however, throws those notions on their head.

If you and your spouse can work together, you will each hire your own attorneys. Then, everyone will sit down in a room together and work together on a final divorce agreement.

By utilizing the collaborative process, you can save the time, money and emotion that often comes with divorce litigation. Additionally, this allows you to remain in control of the process, instead of hoping that a family court judge agrees with you. There is no doubt that divorce is a stressful time, but this process may ultimately be able to help you and your spouse work together in the future, which can help if you are parents who will need to co-parent for many years.

We know many other divorce lawyers in the region, and we are happy to provide recommendations for your spouse so he or she has an effective advocate who can protect his or her rights and interests.
