Collaborative Divorce Michigan – How Does It Work?
The Collaborative approach requires full disclosure of assets and debts; expects a commitment to good–faith problem solving and constructive communication in order to reach a solution that works for both parties. The team members encourage each spouse to observe the principles set forth in the Participation Agreement, and play an important role toward seeking compatible solutions as well as modeling and encouraging the spouses to work collaboratively. If either party does not comply with the Participation Agreement, the collaborative divorce process is terminated, the parties are precluded from using the collaborative team members in their traditional divorce action to follow, including their collaborative lawyers. This investment by each party helps hold the process together as the team works to help the couple work through the difficulties encountered through the transformation of a marriage to dissolution and a new phase.
If problems arise in the future, the collaborative team can be reassembled to work through any new difficulties that may arise. The collaborative process helps increase the capacity of co-parents to maintain mutual respect, have improved communication and an increased ability to find workable solutions.
