Making the decision to get divorced is just one of the first of many decisions that will have to be made about ending a marriage. Yes, you and your spouse want to get divorced, but what method of divorce will you choose? Many people like the idea of staying out of a courtroom and using alternative dispute resolution to get divorced. One way to do that is through a collaborative divorce. A collaborative divorce allows a couple to make the decisions regarding their future themselves and stay out of court. You will have to put your differences aside and be able to work together to come to decisions that work for both parties. However, it is understandable that divorce is a highly emotional process and that the couple may have a hard time making these decisions.
There may be situations in which one of the spouses would prefer to terminate the collaborative divorce and complete the divorce in court instead. This can become complicated because each spouse has pledged to stay out of court and use collaborative law instead. The attorneys may first bring in mediation services for the spouses to work towards an agreement. The attorneys will try to do everything they can in order to avoid this situation from happening. This may also involve hiring other professionals as part of the collaborative team who can assist in the matter. If this does not help, the attorneys are obligated to resign from representing their clients and the clients will have to hire new attorneys.
