One benefit of a Collaborative Divorce is a reduced need for post-judgment legal intervention. Since the process began as a family-focused, resolution-based process, there are usually fewer post-judgment needs to litigate, as the couple 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 agree to adopt a respectful, integrity-based approach to resolving matters facing their family for 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.
