Collaborative law can solve hard cases with the right touch

Some Denver residents who have read our previous posts about the collaborative approach to divorce and separation may wonder whether it really could work for their particular situations.

In some cases, they may see that they have a lot of assets which are difficult to put a value on, or they may have some special child custody and support considerations that they see as difficult to resolve.

In other situations, a couple may hesitate to try collaborative law because there is a lot of emotional baggage between the two of them that could make communication very difficult.

Certainly, collaborative law cannot work in every case, and Coloradans should evaluate with their attorneys whether the process is right for them. However, we encourage people not to write off the process just because they think their situation is complicated or hard.

For instance, when emotional conflict is high, the collaborative process can help the couple talk through it constructively rather than be tempted to take the all or nothing approach litigation often encourages. With quality representation and the right attitude, resolving conflict through collaborative law may save lots of money in costs and fees, not to mention a good deal of family stress.

With respect to complicated finances, the collaborative process would typically call for the parties to agree on a financial expert who will look over the couple's situation and make recommendations. While there is an up-front cost to it, this approach in the long-term can help a couple wade through complicated financial issues, as there are few areas in which a helpful expert opinion is unavailable.
