Collaborative Divorce in Missouri


What is collaborative divorce?  Simply put, it is a process that involves negotiating the issues and solving problems in a way that is respectful and transparent.  This type of divorce is not confrontational or aggressive, but instead allows both spouses and their divorce attorneys and other professionals to resolve differences through conferences and informal discussions in which the approach is one that is more compromised and reasoned.  

Depending on the issues, other neutral parties may be brought in to lend their perspectives such as psychologists, financial experts, or even accountants and appraisers.  By working things out in a neutral sitting, both parties can also safe a substantial amount of money.  Another important factor is that the negative and emotional impact on children can be greatly reduced when parents choose not to "fight it out" in court.

Naturally, a collaborative divorce is a potential way to resolve the issues only when both spouses are agreeable to talking and having neutral parties help them work things out in a way that is amicable rather than hostile.  There are many benefits in this type of divorce in addition to those mentioned above.  For instance, spouses can make decisions rather than having a judge make decisions for them, and you have more control while avoiding the embarrassment both parties may face inside the courtroom.  At The O'Connor Law Firm we urge you to contact a Kansas City family law attorney experienced in collaborative divorce if you desire a less stressful, private, more affordable way to end your marriage.  Call us  now at 816-842-1111.
