How can an Illinois collaborative law attorney help with divorce?

When it comes to divorce and divorce mediation, Illinois residents who want to separate peacefully may want to consider the collaborative law process. Collaborative law has been around for decades, but it is only recently that it has really begun to take off -- and for good reason. Collaborative law seeks to help Illinois couples complete their divorces with dignity, fairness and without the fighting and hatred that many divorces can descend to. The process can also save couples a great deal of time and money.

At the Goddard & Malmquist Attorneys & Counselors at Law, Alexandra Goddard is trained in the collaborative law process. She also participates as a fellow in the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois. This peaceful divorce process offers couples powerful tools to creatively solve problems outside of court. Collaborative law meetings happen with both spouses and their collaborative law attorneys present for negotiations. In these meetings, both sides address their goals and concerns in a peaceful fashion.

The ultimate goal for all parties involved in a collaborative divorce is to arrive at a mutually satisfactory divorce settlement. The idea of rooting out win-win solutions to problems is always front and center during the collaborative process. However, in order to obtain such a result, couples will want to retain an appropriately trained collaborative law attorney.

A collaborative law divorce may not be for everyone. However, for spouses who want to engage in the process, it can be time-saving, money-saving and stress-reducing. Indeed, the Goddard & Malmquist Attorneys & Counselors at Law has many happy clients who have been surprised at just how peaceful the divorce process can be.
