Collaborative divorce is an important option for divorcing couples to consider to help them through their divorce process. Collaborative divorce is an alternative dispute resolution option that provides divorcing spouses with the opportunity to resolve their dispute in a lower stress, lower conflict, environment that can be more efficient for the divorcing couple.
While it may be ideal to end a relationship without conflict, the reality is that many if not most divorces and other breakups will inevitably involve some arguments between the spouses.
When a Wisconsin resident is in the thick of a divorce, it can be hard to see the happy ending that awaits them when they are out of their relationship. They may worry about their children and how they will cope with the changes that are happening in their family. They may experience stress about money and how they will pay for their new lifestyle without the support of their ex's income.
It is often the case that more can be accomplished by individuals when they pool their resources and work together. This is a truth in Wisconsin workplaces, households, schools and in many social contexts people are encouraged to work together so that the resolutions they come up with serves the needs of the many, instead of just the few. In essence, collaboration is a good way for people with different perspectives to find common ground and answers to their collective troubles.
Few people like being told what to do. This is true for children when it comes to doing what their parents say, and this can also be true for adults who wish to exercise the freedom and autonomy they desire to solve their problems on their own terms. However, when it comes to legal processes, many Wisconsin residents accept that the outcomes of their cases will be determined by the rulings of the courts that hear their matters.
Television dramas like to play up the contentious nature of litigation and one area of legal practice that is often used to show the challenges of courtroom battles is divorce. Divorces are, by their nature, adversarial because they involve the legal breaking of marital bonds that were forged through the application for and receipt of marriage licenses. However, what Wisconsin residents may not know is that not every divorce has to be argumentative.
