Wendy A. Mara, attorney at Mara Law, P.A., announces that her firm is now offering a new family law service, namely, Collaborative Divorce. —
Collaborative Divorce is an alternative to a traditional divorce. All participants are contractually required to conduct themselves with civility and respect thus fostering respectful and civil relationships post-divorce.
Collaborative Divorce is a way to divorce that encourages the spouses to take charge of the outcome of disassembling and reassembling the family. It encourages them to work together with the support of their individual collaboratively-trained attorneys and team consisting of a neutral Mental Health Professional ("MHP") and a neutral Financial Professional ("FP"). The MHP is not there to diagnose or treat anyone, but instead serves as a team leader, communication coach, and co-parenting/timesharing advisor. The FP will help the divorcing spouses decide issues related to the division of their assets and liabilities as well as spousal and child support.
The collaborative process can be challenging. However, the process is meant to support individuals in making good choices that tend to have the effect of mitigating the harm that divorce causes to every member of the family.
Conversely, in litigation, the judge decides everything from how your assets and liabilities are to be divided, to the most intimate and personal things like when you will spend time with your child. By litigating the parties leave critical, life-changing decisions up to a stranger, albeit a professionally-seasoned and fair stranger.
Ms. Mara welcomes any opportunity to discuss collaborative divorce as an option with spouses looking into divorcing, especially if the spouses are willing to 'work' on the decisions that must be made in a divorce situation.
