For divorcing partners and those involved in a business conflict or inheritance dispute
Divorce: Partners who are going to divorce
Collaborative divorce is a good solution for partners who wish to split up in consultation and who need to make clear agreements about the children and/or joint property. This is almost always done according to our method without lengthy court proceedings, and always with respect for the other party. A multidisciplinary team of experts, consisting of attorneys, a financial expert, a coach/psychologist and, if necessary, a child coach, will supervise your divorce. Each partner will be assisted by their own attorney, which means you will always feel supported during the process. Even if there are currently major divides between you and your partner that appear to be unbridgeable, a collaborative divorce can often still be the right solution. Our team always carefully monitors to make sure we maintain an equal balance between the two parties.
The benefits and conditions of a collaborative divorce:
- There will be no proceedings before the court
- You can avoid a messy divorce
- Parents and children have the highest priority
- A team of experts guides you and your partner through every aspect
- A financial professional assesses your finances, including those of your company (if applicable)
- You are both able to treat each other with respect
- A collaborative divorce is faster and more sustainable
- We’re not just looking at what needs to be done now, we also look at the future.
- Because you will both be assisted by your own attorney, you will feel like you always have a strong position in the negotiations and the process will be fair for everyone.
This kind of divorce is a good solution for:
- Partners with children who are getting divorced and want to handle things properly without lengthy legal proceedings
- Partners without children whose business and/or financial interests are closely intertwined
- Entrepreneurs who are getting divorced
- Expats who are separating from their partner and want to make sure things are handled fairly
- Partners who value being surrounded by a team of the best professionals.
Even if you are not married, collaborative separation can be a good option for you, especially if you have children together and/or there are business and financial interests at play.
The collaborative practice: when you need help with professional and personal conflicts
By the time a conflict reaches a certain point, it generally involves major financial and legal interests. Conflict also always evokes emotions. This makes it a lot more difficult to find a solution that is acceptable to all parties. Working together to find a solution is often no longer an option, and it’s easy to fall back on taking things to court. That does not happen in the collaborative practice. You and the other party will look for a solution together, without involving the courts. Each party will have their own attorney and will be assisted by a team of professionals, consisting of attorneys, financial experts and a coach/psychologist.
This type of conflict resolution is suitable for:
- Disagreements over inheritance
- Business disputes
- Shareholder disputes and disagreements between directors and partners
