In this short informational video from Anna P. Krolikowska, founder of Anna K Law and the sitting ISBA President, primes you on what Collaborative Divorce is and how it can ease the divorce process.
The purpose of a collaborative divorce is to give spouses the opportunity to resolve their disputes without litigation. When couples agree to use the collaborative process, a team is formed for each spouse and together, solutions are identified and agreed upon until all issues are resolved and a final divorce decree is signed and filed.
The collaborative approach allows the parties to keep matters private and work through their issues together. The process promotes effective communication and allows the parties to retain decision-making control. In addition, the collaborative process has been shown to improve the chances for long-term cooperation between the parties.
