A Different Way to Divorce
"Collaborative Divorce Solutions of Orange County, California (CDSOC) offers you a healthy divorce process that provides support and guidance to your family through a cooperative team approach.
Collaborative divorce is a new, no-court process which is an alternative to the traditional system where two attorneys represent husband and wife in court. When you enter the collaborative process, you agree to stay out of court and make your own decisions.
Orange County’s Collaborative Divorce Solutions will provide you with a team of uniquely trained professionals. The team consists of non-adversarial lawyers, divorce coaches, a financial consultant and (if there are children) a child specialist who will assist you in your negotiated divorce settlement. The team will help you make well informed decisions as you go through the collaborative process and complete your divorce."
The end of a marriage or relationship can be tragic. Often, the process of divorcing only adds to the pain. You and your spouse may come to see each other as adversaries and the divorce as a battleground. You may experience feelings of confusion, anger, loss and conflict. Under such circumstances, you might find it difficult to see an end to divorce, much less imagine a hopeful future afterwards.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. A growing number of parting couples, along with professionals in the field such as lawyers, divorce coaches, child specialist and financial consultants have been seeking a more constructive alternative. These professionals have developed the Collaborative Practice model.
Collaborative Practice is a reasonable approach to divorce based on three principles:
Mutual respect is fundamental to the collaborative way. You may cease being spouses, but you don’t cease being worthy human beings. When respect is given and received, discussions are likely to be more productive and an agreement reached more easily.
