How can a collaborative divorce in Virginia benefit me?

Collaborative divorce can be a good alternative for women facing a Virginia divorce, and has been an increasingly popular choice for divorcing couples across the country.

Divorce can be a confusing and heartbreaking event that many couples dread. While collaborative divorce doesn't take all of the sting out of dissolving your marriage, it does help put more of the decision-making power into the hands of the divorcing parties.

In a collaborative divorce in Virginia, you and your spouse agree to have civil and respectful communication facilitated by a group of experienced professionals. The team includes your respective Newport News divorce lawyers, 2 divorce coaches, a financial specialist, a child specialist and a case manager.

A collaborative divorce in Virginia can benefit you in many ways, including:

  • it is generally less stressful than traditional courtroom divorce;
  • it can help you learn more about Virginia divorce and give you a greater sense of control over the process;
  • it can be more cost effective;
  • it provides the knowledgeable counsel of a team of professionals to help guide you; and
  • it can be an emotionally healthier option for your children because the collaborative divorce process encourages cooperation and civility, rather than animosity and bitterness.

If you have questions about whether a collaborative divorce in Virginia is an option for you, you should contact an experienced Newport News divorce lawyer who offers collaborative divorce.

Keep in mind that while it is a legitimate alternative to the traditional divorce, not every couple will benefit from a collaborative divorce in Virginia.
