Collaborative divorce in Arizona involves each divorcing party hiring their own collaborative divorce lawyer and signing an agreement to cooperate honestly for out-of-court and amicable divorce resolution.
Collaborative Divorce Process
The Collaborative Divorce process begins with a goal. The goal of collaborative divorce is to empower divorcing parties to cooperate towards efficient and timely conclusion of their divorce settlement. Collaborate divorce agreement includes clauses for representing lawyers to withdraw from the case, should spouses breach terms of integrity or cooperation. Should litigation arise, the cooperative divorce lawyer will not proceed to represent the client in court.
Divorcing parties often wish to achieve speedy and harmonious settlement of their divorce without court interference. One of the principle benefits of collaborative divorce is that you get to be very involved in the decision-making process of the divorce. You and your spouse will be in control of the negotiation and outcome of a collaborative divorce and there won’t be a judge making final decisions for your family.
