Collaborative Law vs. Mediation: What's the Difference?
Mediation is not the same as collaborative law. This is because:
- There is not a neutral mediator
- Each side has legal representation
- Each person can choose to speak to the other person through their attorney
Collaborative law allows each person to be represented by their own lawyer while still being able to work out the terms of their divorce themselves, rather than a judge deciding everything for them.
What Is a Collaborative Divorce Attorney?
A collaborative divorce lawyer provides legal counsel for one party in a collaborative law proceeding. Collaborative lawyers do not represent their client or speak on their behalf; instead, collaborative attorneys offer counsel and guidance to their client as they work out their divorce out-of-court.
Benefits to Choosing Collaborative Law
By choosing a collaborative process, you are able to be in charge in the outcome instead of leaving it in the hands of the court. You can have an active role in resolving issues relating to alimony, child support, child custody and visitation, and other issues. An advantage many people experience from using the collaborative process is that is that it can be much easier on the children knowing that their parents are working together and keeping them as a priority.
