Cooperative Divorce

Make Divorce not War™

A Peaceful Approach for Divorce

The goal of Cooperative Divorce is to reach resolution through mediation. Cooperative divorce begins with the end in mind—designing a new future for your family with the best tools available for your specific situation.

In traditional divorce litigation, the divorcing parties rely heavily on the court to exchange information and reach decisions. Divorce litigation can be adversarial, exhausting, slow and expensive.

Collaborative divorce follows a stringent, prescribed process to reach agreement in a specific number of sessions during with the divorcing parties receive the help of their respective lawyers and additional professionals trained in the collaborative process. The parties openly share information and discuss possible outcomes, and hopefully, reach resolution. However, should negotiations stall or fail and litigation becomes necessary, the parties must hire new counsel to represent them.

Cooperative Divorce model is a hybrid of the best characteristics of both collaborative and litigation divorces. It can be a quicker and more cost-effective way to design your family’s new future.

If any of these thoughts entered into your head since you decided to file for divorce, you might be a good candidate for a cooperative divorce.

“I just want to move on with my life.”

“My children deserve better than to have their parents fight all the time.”

“I don’t want a long, drawn-out battle with my ex.”

Designing your New Future

Divorce can make you feel like your home has been gutted and you have no idea which room to renovate first or how to begin the process. Before you renovate a house, you usually establish a plan. You have a vision for the space, maybe an inspiration piece of art or a specific need for the space. Those ideals, coupled with your budget and barring any pitfalls, will guide you through most of your decisions. A cooperative divorce is similar.

With a home renovation, there are parts you will be able to handle on your own, such as choosing a paint color and painting a room. There are aspects of the renovation that require professionals, such as rewiring electrical outlets.

You and your spouse may be able to readily agree on a shared parenting plan, needing help only for the legal language. But when it comes to the division of assets, you might each need the advice of a competent attorney or financial professionals to illuminate potential pitfalls and help you determine which solution best meets your goals and needs.

A Mediator's role in a Cooperative Divorce

Cooperative divorce encourages the divorcing parties to reach consensus on as many issues as they can, relying on a professional mediator to assist with the rest. A mediator is a neutral third-party that helps the divorcing couple resolve issues and financial matters that will affect their family’s future. Although some mediators are attorneys, it is not required that a mediator be an attorney.  A mediator brings options to the table and helps the couple reach a customized solution that is best for their unique family and circumstances.

If mediation fails—which happens in a small percentage of TK Law Firm’s cases—litigation is a last resort available in Cooperative Divorce. The parties do not need to hire new attorneys for litigation, as they do when a Collaborative Divorce fails.

At TK Law Firm our experience through hundreds of cases taught us that divorces that begin with litigation in mind can end as a grudge match. The parties ultimately spend too much money on a fight for things they don’t need, when they could be moving forward to grow bigger, better lives for themselves and their families. Cooperative Divorce, with mediation as the end goal, keeps litigation as a last resort, often saving time and money for the client.
