As a professional in the collaborative divorce process, it is important to highlight the significance of the Divorce Options(R) Workshop (DOW) for those couples navigating through the initial stages of divorce.
Many divorcing couples are unaware of the various ways to get a divorce. It may surprise you that you and your partner have many options that do not include litigation.
During the DOW workshop, we discuss with our attendees four different methods a couple can use to obtain a divorce – self-representation, litigation, mediation, and collaborative divorce.
Each process has its pros and cons, and because of this, we often find that couples tend to get
overwhelmed, and they have many questions that need to be answered before they can determine which method is best for their separation process.
If a couple wants to try an out-of-court divorce model like mediation or collaborative divorce, they are more likely to reach a satisfactory agreement with the least amount of time, cost and conflict possible while keeping their family unit intact.
These two successful processes work towards a peaceful resolution that does not have a winner or loser. Each person has a voice and input into how their divorce agreement will be drafted.
The professionals who assist in these out-of-court processes are specifically trained in conflict resolution management, and their values are aligned with peacekeeping for the family.
It’s important to make sound decisions that are discussed with importance. The DOW workshop provides education and directs participants to the next step, alleviating anxiety and the fear of the unknown.
If you or someone you know could benefit from our Divorce Options Workshop, please contact us or sign up. To learn more, please go to our website.
The DOW workshop generally occurs on the second Saturday of each month between 10-12 am.
We look forward to helping you and your family discover what divorce options will work best to help your family through the divorce process.
