Find Out If Collaborative Divorce Is Right for You
Columbus Collaborative Divorce Professionals
Also Serving Ohioans in Franklin & Delaware
Divorce is commonly one of life’s most traumatic and painful experiences. It involves countless aspects of your personal and family life upon which you may have relied for years or decades. It often impacts not only you and your spouse but children and even extended family, who all may have opinions and “advice” about your situation.
The entire structure of your life will likely be upended when ending your marriage. These changes can range from how to deal with the family home and mortgage to other financial matters as well as the often-challenging issue of parental rights and responsibility. Dealing with all the factors in your divorce can be overwhelming enough without having to expose yourself and your children to the stress of an adversarial courtroom trial.
The Win Win Divorce (COACDP), better known as Win Win Divorce, offers a better way to divorce that involves non-court methods that allow you and your spouse to remain in control of these critical decisions and arrangements. You and your spouse know your situation and family better than anyone. With the right professional help, you can restructure your post-divorce life optimally outside of the courtroom. This means a more humane, less divisive, less expensive, and less time-consuming process.

In addition to collaborative law, several other alternative dispute-resolution tools can limit conflict. It may be possible to avoid litigation with direct or indirect negotiation without a collaborative participation agreement, mediation, early neutral evaluation, and/or arbitration.
Collaborative Family Law Act
In 2013, the Ohio Collaborative Family Law Process Act went into effect. This legislation sets out the requirements and protections afforded by participation in a collaborative family law process.
Communications that occur with lawyers in the collaborative family law process are confidential. Privileged communications also extend to those made by the parties and non-parties designated to participate in the process (such as financial professionals and family coaches). This means that what is discussed in the collaborative process cannot be used against you in court if this process is terminated and a divorce case is filed in court.
