Reputable Collaborative Divorce Attorney Serving Oregon Clients

divorcing spouses collaborating with a family lawyerAre you and your spouse generally on good terms and able to approach issues in a calm manner? Are you fearful of emotionally painful court appearances? Are you willing to compromise with your spouse on the terms of your impending divorce? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, collaborative divorce might be a good option for you and your family.

What is Collaborative Divorce?

Put simply, a collaborative divorce is one in which both parties agree to hammer out the details of their divorce outside of the courtroom and in a cooperative way. Instead of letting a judge decide on certain aspects such as the division of marital debt and assets and custody and child support, the two of you and your respective attorneys will work together to decide those things.

What Does Collaborative Divorce Look Like?

The terms of your divorce will be decided through as many coordinated meetings as it takes, though efficiency is often an important goal. Because you will have reached these decisions jointly and are not contesting them, it is almost guaranteed that Oregon courts will accept the terms of your divorce without your having to argue for them in front of a judge.
