STAY HEALTHY DURING YOUR DIVORCE

Eating a balanced diet and working out may keep stress at lower levels during a divorce. Because divorces can be very exhausting, one should have a way to escape stress both physically and mentally. Take part in a fitness routine as a way to generate self esteem and recognize your own strength. Eating right ensures more energy and promotes general health.

WHAT IS COLLABORATIVE LAW

Collaborative Law is a way to achieve sound settlement of serious issues such as divorce. Because it focuses on a “win – win” approach rather than an “I win – you lose” approach, the Collaborative method is especially well suited to situations where ongoing relationships may be involved. For this reason, the method also is used to solve other problems, such as labor and business disputes.

The Collaborative method works via a series of private and confidential meetings in which the couple and their professional advisors discuss the concerns, gather information and develop options. Then, they negotiate an optimal arrangement that meets the needs of both parties. The resulting agreement becomes a legally binding contract that is approved by the court. For an average family, four to six meetings may be needed, although the total will depend on the number of issues the couple needs to address.

IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF COLLABORATIVE LAW

1.The collaborative process is voluntary and both spouses must agree to use the process

2.All proceedings are confidential and take place outside of court

3.Full disclosure of assets, obligations and incomes is required

4.The focus is on forging a settlement that meets the future needs of both parties and the children, rather than assigning blame

5.Both parties always retain the right to go to court if the process ends without agreement

6.Attorneys and other professionals who work with the couple collaboratively may not later switch into litigation roles in the matter. If the case goes to court, parties may represent themselves or hire attorneys, however, the collaborative attorneys and other collaborative experts may not participate in the litigation.
