The Collaborative Divorce Option

It is an unfortunate fact that a high percentage of marriages in America end in divorce. Divorce is never easy, but it does NOT have to be adversarial or contentious. You CAN divorce with dignity and respect. You CAN divorce without going to court. The State of North Carolina has enacted a statute defining and regulating an alternative dispute resolution process called COLLABORATIVE LAW. The collaborative law process can be used in any type of case, but it is particularly suited for divorce cases. Collaborative Divorce (also called peaceful divorce or divorce without court) helps divorcing couples resolve financial and parenting issues without nasty courtroom battles. Collaborative Divorce uses informal, private discussions and conferences to resolve sensitive family issues. The process focuses on settlement, without the threat of going to court, and both spouses use lawyers trained in the Collaborative Law process. The collaborative law process is described in Chapter 50 of the North Carolina General Statutes. You can find the statute on-line or by visiting a law library near you. Attorney John Fernandez is trained in the collaborative law process and he is standing by to answer any questions you might have about how the process works.
