The benefits of collaborative law divorces

Collaborative law divorces are only becoming more popular in Illinois, and that is because of the numerous advantages they bring to the table. Not only do collaborative law divorces tend to be less expensive, but they also have some other lesser-known benefits.

For example, when you participate in a collaborative law divorce, you will be able to schedule meetings according to you and your spouse's calendars rather than depending on the schedule of the court. This means that a collaborative law divorce can often be completed faster because it will not be necessary to wait for an opening in the court's schedule. Nor will you have to worry about getting something scheduled when you have a conflict. Also, a collaborative divorce can happen as slowly or as quickly as you want, since you and your spouse will be in complete control of the scheduling.

All meetings will be held in a private place. Rather than conducting meetings in a courtroom, where your discussions could be overheard by strangers, litigants and lawyers, a collaborative law meeting will only have four individuals present. Those individuals are the two attorneys representing you and your spouse, and of course, you and your spouse.

Considering that a collaborative law divorce is extremely flexible and can employ the use of financial professionals, child specialists, divorce coaches and other kinds of professionals, it certainly offers a lot of advantages that many Illinois residents are eager to take advantage of. Nevertheless, many people take advantage of the process due to the more widely known financial benefits, the speed and the less stressful atmosphere of the proceedings.
