Is Collaborative Divorce the best option for you and your family?


A collaborative divorce is a team approach to resolving family law disputes through the process of a structured meeting involving both parties and their lawyers. Because both parties commit to freely disclosing information, formal measures – such as court orders – are usually not required. With Virk Law, collaborative divorce environments are often free from threatening letters, accusatory statements, unreasonable or unrealistic positions, and malicious accusations. In collaborative resolutions, a cooperative agreement is signed in which the parties agree they will not go to court unless the collaborative process breaks down, and both parties obtain new lawyers.

Is Collaborative Divorce the right choice for you? To make this difficult time easier for you, we have compiled a comprehensive questionnaire to help you make the right decision for you and your family.

Consider Collaborative Divorce

If you want more control over the process – any agreement will be made by you and your spouse and not imposed by a judge
If you are ready to negotiate respectfully and reach agreements that are good for everyone
If you are willing to sacrifice personal objectives in the pursuit of common objectives
If you are willing to disclose all financial information and other relevant information
If you are committed to avoiding the court litigation process
If you are looking to save money, as collaborative divorce generally costs less than litigation

Consider Other Options

If considering your spouse’s objectives is not an option
If there is little evidence to suggest that an amicable agreement can be reached
If you’re in an abusive relationship and are separating due to domestic violence
If you don’t want to disclose all of your financial information or keep facts secret in the process
