The word “divorce” can invoke negative feelings and fear even in Wisconsin residents who have never had to go through the process. That is because most people think of divorce as a confrontational and hostile process that pits former partners against each other in an antagonistic legal spectacle. While some divorces unfortunately follow this hostile path, readers should be aware that not every divorce must be difficult.

That is because in Wisconsin individuals can elect to use collaboration to bring their marriages to their ends. As prior posts on this divorce and family law blog have mentioned, collaborative divorces allow divorcing parties to work together to find acceptable solutions to their end-of-marriage differences. Rather than putting a judge in charge of dividing up their property and deciding where their kids should live, partners to an ending marriage take control of their futures and make choices about how best to serve the interests of all of the parties involved.

Readers who are interested in divorce and who are interested in learning more about their divorce options are well-served by soliciting help from attorneys who practice both traditional and collaborative divorce. At D'Angelo & Grabow, individuals can discover a wealth of information about both divorce paths and can be assisted in the process of deciding which one may best achieve their end-of-marriage needs.

Collaborative divorce is not for everyone, and traditional litigated divorce is always available to those who require the intervention of the court to support their legal lights. The attorneys and staff of D'Angelo & Grabow welcome inquiries from new clients who want to start the New Year with trusted information about their divorce options.
