Collaborative Versus Traditional Litigation
Wheaton Collaborative Law Firm Serving DuPage County, IL
In today's challenging economy, individuals are more cognizant about resolving legal disputes in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. Traditional trial litigation, while effective, can be a rather lengthy and expensive process. Fortunately, there are methods of alternative dispute resolution open to individuals.
At Andrew Cores Family Law Group, our lawyers carefully examine an individual's circumstances and offer him or her experienced legal advice on how best to proceed. Often, disputes can be resolved by using collaborative law. Through our experience, we have noted several positive aspects of settling disputes through collaboration, including:
- Cost: Collaborative law can cost less than traditional litigation in terms of both finances and emotions. By resolving disputes rather than relying on multiple court appearances, emotional conflicts can be resolved in an efficient and professional setting.
- Time: Most often, disputes resolved through the collaborative process find solutions quicker than through traditional litigation. Litigation typically requires multiple court appearances, motions and filings. Collaborative divorce can get at the heart of matter in a more efficient manner.
- Future considerations: By working through a collaborative divorce, couples can not only resolve issues as they appear in the present, but also anticipate disputes for the future. It is our goal to provide clients with a more respectful and dignified atmosphere in order to transition into their future.
- Relaxed atmosphere: Many individuals feel that the traditional litigation process is, at its foundation, much too argumentative. They wish to resolve their differences through conversation and negotiation. The process of collaborative divorce gives them an atmosphere that fosters meaningful communication and valuable discussion.
