Collaborative Divorce Lawyer in Annapolis

Healing Clients Throughout Maryland with Divorce Proceedings

Divorce can be a costly, time-consuming, and emotionally overwhelming process for everyone involved. In order to avoid expensive litigation that leaves both spouses torn apart and financially devastated, collaborative divorce is a new alternative way to amicably and respectfully end your marriage. When it comes to this type of divorce, the spouses and their lawyers negotiate a divorce settlement—without going to court—with the common goal of reaching a fair resolution for both parties.

If you are interested in filing a collaborative divorce, our Annapolis family law attorneys at DiPietro Law Group, PLLC is prepared to help you and your spouse reach a fair resolution for all parties involved. We have successfully helped guide countless clients through the collaborative divorce process, so we understand what it takes to reach a favorable agreement.

Understanding the Collaborative Divorce Process

In a collaborative divorce, both parties can each retain an attorney to help protect their best interests. During the process, neither party is not allowed to threaten the other to go to court. Rather, both spouses must cooperate with one another to reach an amicable agreement on various divorce issues (i.e. alimony, child custody, child support, property division, etc.).

Attorneys retained for collaborative divorce are specifically trained to obtain “win-win” settlements instead of “win-lose.” Settlements are reached in four-way meetings, where each party and their lawyer to discuss issues and seek ways to arrive at an agreement.

The following are the main advantages of collaborative divorce compared to the traditional proceedings:

  • Both spouses control their own destiny, rather than leaving the decision up to a judge
  • Less costly compared to court litigation
  • The process is confidential and private, unlike litigation which is a matter of public record
  • Less time consuming compared to litigation
  • Less stressful because both parties are playing a more active role in the divorce
  • Makes the divorce process easier on everyone, especially if children are involved

If the process breaks down at any point, neither the attorney nor anyone from their firm may represent the couple. This means the couple can move to court and start all over.
