Collaborative Divorce In Monmouth County

The divorce process is often presented as stressful, drawn-out and highly litigious, but it does not have to be. Many couples are committed to resolving their differences without high levels of conflict so they can complete the divorce process efficiently and cost-effectively.

In New Jersey collaborative divorces, couples commit upfront to resolve all matters without litigating. Both parties generally retain attorneys who are trained and experienced in collaborative divorce to assist them through the process. The attorneys in collaborative divorce typically agree to withdraw from the case if the two sides cannot reach an agreement on any matter and the parties decide to litigate.

Collaborative Law Attorneys Serving Central New Jersey

The experienced family law attorneys at Deitch & Perone, P.C., are thoroughly knowledgeable and trained in the collaborative divorce method and its benefits. We are members of the Jersey Shore Collaborative Law Group. We help our clients navigate the divorce process and put them in the best possible position financially and emotionally to move forward with the rest of their life.

You may wonder why lawyers are necessary if the participants determine ahead of time that they can resolve issues without going to court. It's important to emphasize that the same important issues that need to be resolved in traditional divorces — child custody and visitation, division of assets and debt, spousal support, etc. — must also be resolved in collaborative divorces. While the parties are committed to resolving matters amicably, there may be differences of opinion and disputes to resolve. We assertively protect our clients' rights as they reach an agreement on these key decisions.

Our firm works with mediators, child psychologists and other specialists who help us resolve matters in divorce. Our experience shows that couples who retain control over child custody, child support and other aspects of their post-divorce lives communicate better after the divorce and are more satisfied in the long term with the outcome. Children also frequently benefit from collaborative divorce because the focus is on their needs.
