Collaborative Divorce Cases In Illinois

This post will highlight the benefits of Collaborative Divorce Cases In Illinois. Below are examples of the benefits of Collaborative Divorce shared by members of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals:

An Atlanta couple of 16 years entered into a ‘new' relationship with the help of Collaborative Practice. Having a team of lawyers, a child psychologist and a financial planner allowed the family to talk through a fair financial arrangement and to meet the needs of the children. Collaborative Practice helped the couple keep their perspective of what is important. The entire process only took six months and both parents still meet once a week to give each other updates on what has happened the previous week in the children's lives.

Two parents had a special needs child that was the subject of their financial conflict. Collaborative Practice not only enabled them to refocus their discussion and come to an agreement, but to continue to work together after the divorce to make sure that both their children receive the care and support that they need.

A divorced couple who had once been childhood sweethearts could not keep communication civil and tensions increased as custodial issues regarding their five-year-old son arose. The breaking point for the couple led them to Collaborative Practice where they learned how to communicate with each other to enable the healthy development of their son. The collaborative process also solved the custodial issues by giving each parent 50/50 custody and arranging a financial plan where both parents contribute to costs relating to their son and both are able to monitor the spending of the money.
