Nevada Collaborative Divorce

Introducing Collaborative Practice

Collaborative Practice is a tried and true dispute resolution model in which a divorcing couple works with a team of trained professionals to resolve disputes respectfully, without going to court. This team includes attorneys, mental health professionals and financial experts who guide and assist the parties in resolving their conflict through cooperative strategies rather than adversarial techniques or litigation.

The goal of Cooperative Divorce in Nevada is to provide a method of dissolving a marriage that reduces the stress, time and expense normally associated with a traditionally litigated divorce through one of our Reno divorce attorneys. Unlike traditional methods of divorce, the Collaborative Divorce model addresses the significant but often overlooked impact of divorce on personal health and financial matters. With the help of a Collaborative Team, divorce mediation is much more successful for you and your partner.

How The Process Works

The Collaborative Divorce process begins with a signed participation agreement. Both parties agree that they will not go to court, nor threaten the other party with going to court. They also agree to work hard and in good faith, using common sense reasoning and creative negotiations to reach a mutually acceptable divorce settlement.

The unique aspect of this type of divorce mediation is that the Collaborative Team works entirely outside of the court system. Everything is conducted in private meetings and through private communications in an open, non-confrontational setting.
The key benefit of Collaborative Divorce is that the parties are always in charge of their own resolution.
The Collaborative Team only suggests and provides appropriate options, solutions and compromises. The parties decide the terms of their divorce, not the lawyers or a judge. When the terms of an agreement are reached, the Collaborative Team’s purpose is to facilitate the parties’ decisions into legally binding arrangements through our Reno divorce lawyers.

If the Collaborative Divorce process fails for any reason, none of the associated professionals can represent either party or serve as witnesses in court. The only interest of the collaborative professionals is to assist both parties in reaching a mutually agreeable settlement outside of court.

The result is that both parties must work very hard to settle their case and reach an agreeable resolution. If a full agreement cannot be reached, both parties must begin the divorce process again with new attorneys and other professionals.
