What does it mean to get a Virginia collaborative divorce?

A Virginia divorce can be a complicated process that requires both parties involved to compromise on some matters.

If you and your spouse cannot agree on matters such as the division of property, child custody arrangements, and spousal support, these things will need to be decided by a Virginia court.

In many cases, a couple seeking a Virginia divorce would benefit from a collaborative divorce. Collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial process, which means a process in which the divorcing parties choose to cooperate rather than fight.

In a Virginia collaborative divorce, a team of experts advises the divorcing parties and guides them through the divorce process.

A Virginia collaborative divorce team usually includes two collaborative lawyers, two divorce coaches, a financial specialist and a child specialist. Each party gets one collaborative lawyer and one divorce coach, and they share the services of the neutral financial specialist and child specialist.

When a couple chooses Virginia collaborative divorce, they agree to be civil with one another, and to communicate in a respectful way.

They also agree not to undertake any courtroom divorce battles while participating in the collaborative divorce.

Collaborative divorce focuses on the needs of the parties involved in the divorce, and allows them to learn more about Virginia divorce law so they can be empowered to make informed decisions.
