One huge benefit of a Collaborative Divorce is the reduced need for post-judgment legal interventions. Since the process began as a family-focused, resolution-based process, there are usually fewer post-judgment needs to litigate, as the couple has created an air of respect and cooperation during their divorce process. Of course, when matters do arise, such couples can return to their Collaborative team of professionals to address any matters that need resolving.
Even couples who did not divorce under the Collaborative Process, however, can use it post-judgment if both parties so choose. It’s never too late to bring a Collaborative approach to a divorced family! Even if an initial divorce process turned ugly and vindictive, post-judgment, parties can always agree to revert to respectful, integrity-based dealings to resolve matters facing their family in years to come. The values of honest and straightforward communication, good listening, open negotiation and creative problem-solving guide the Collaborative Divorce Process – whether upon initiating a divorce, during the divorce process or dealing with a post-judgment issue.
