Collaborative Divorce in Urbandale, IA


A collaborative divorce is an option for couples when both parties are committed to resolving issues and reaching consensus.

  • Both parties sign a “no court” agreement
  • Each party is represented by a collaborative attorney, and other professionals may be included
 
  • Spouses and attorneys negotiate together
 
  • It's more efficient and less expensive than the court process
 
If your case involves complicated legal or financial issues, the collaborative approach may work best. If there is a power imbalance in your relationship having an attorney at your side speaking on your behalf may be comforting. In a collaborative divorce, the two attorneys lead the process.
