Court proceedings and mediation are not the only ways of resolving disputes. A ‘collaborative divorce’ is another form of dispute resolution. This is a method of conflict resolution that has the same advantages as mediation, including the prevention of prolonged, costly legal proceedings.
It’s all about finding a way out together rather than competing against one another. Backed by a team of professionals, the two parties work out the details of the divorce settlement. Respect is the key to success here: respect for each other and for each other's family background.
One of the preconditions for a successful collaborative divorce is a promise by both partners not to go to court during the process. Open communication allows the partners to retain the right balance of knowledge, ability, emotions and authority. If necessary, we will call in the help of an expert such as an accountant or a psychologist.
