Divorce is a legal process for ending a marriage. Collaboration is a method that uses a combination of standard divorce and mediation where solicitors help mitigate the challenges. You and your soon-to-be ex-spouse hire lawyers and try to work out the problems without litigation and then formalise them.
Divorce mediation is a more flexible and cost-effective process for divorce, which involves a neutral, third-party mediator. The mediator is a skilled expert who can help couples find a mutually beneficial compromise. The mediator brainstorms ideas, encourages empathy and openness, and gives couples a reality check.
Solicitor to Solicitor Negotiation
Solicitors work out different options that can help couples find an agreement. Solicitors can help narrow down the problems, set a positive tone and work out different details, such as buying a house after divorce, to give both parties peace of mind. This is a highly beneficial option for couples who don’t want a settlement to be imposed on them.
