San Diego Collaborative Divorce Attorneys

Many couples who decide to divorce want more collaboration and control during their divorce proceedings. In a collaborative divorce, both members of the couple and each of their lawyers decide to negotiate cooperatively to resolve the situation, rather than relying on litigation and court orders. This helps the couple reach an agreeable settlement without the typical adversarial circumstances and it can lessen the trauma of an invariably difficult situation.

If you are considering divorce and looking for an alternative method for resolving your dispute, the San Diego collaborative divorce attorneys at Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, can help. To speak with a lawyer about your situation, contact our offices today at (760) 757-6854.

Collaborative Divorce

During a collaborative divorce, each party signs a participation agreement which outlines the terms of the negotiations, which include:

  • Discussions will be held in a constructive, fair, and non-adversarial manner
  • Negotiations will focus on the best interests of the couples’ children (if any) and preserving a healthy relationship between each parent and child.
  • Each lawyer will assist their client in reaching a settlement that is fair to both parties
  • If one member of the couple decides to pursue litigation after the negotiation, neither of the collaborative divorce attorneys may be involved in the process

Many couples prefer to end a marriage as peacefully and collaboratively as possible, both for their own benefit and for the well-being of their children. If you wish to pursue this option, we would encourage you to consult with a San Diego collaborative divorce lawyer.
