One of the stereotypes of divorce is that the splitting spouses are screaming and yelling at each other in the courtroom. While divorce isn't exactly a happy time for the splitting spouses, filing for divorce doesn't mean that the two spouses are so angry and upset with each other that they are incapable of working out a fair and proper divorce agreement.
Reaching that point is quite serious, and it is best to go into divorce proceedings with a clear head and calm spirit. Sometimes the divorcing couple wants to avoid court proceedings because of the time, cost and stress associated with them. Instead, they use alternative dispute resolution and collaborative approaches to the divorce to help them craft a customized divorce agreement without the hassle and stress associated with court proceedings.
Alternative dispute resolution isn't something that any attorney can perform. You will want experienced attorneys on your side who know how to effectively and efficiently proceed with such collaborative divorce meetings. At Berg Debele DeSmidt & Rabuse, we help people in Minneapolis and all across Minnesota address their divorces in an appropriate manner -- and if you want to utilize alternative dispute resolution, we have the experience and know-how to support you.
Even though collaborative sessions in this context sound great, there are never guarantees in family law. Not every couple that enters alternative dispute resolution is going to leave it with the perfect agreement. But we will work hard for you so that the result allows you to move on to the next great chapter in your life.
