Attorney Nancy Eaton, founder of the Law Office of Nancy Perry Eaton, PLLC, was featured on a segment about collaborative divorce on Central Texas News Now 25. Collaborative divorce is an alternative way to divorce that offers a more efficient, private, and sometimes cheaper option than traditional litigation.
“The courts are extremely backed up here in Bell County, and we’re trying to better serve our clients and efficiently do the divorces here,” Ms. Eaton told News Now 25. “You may spend a lot of money just going to court just to find out you can’t get heard…”
What Is Collaborative Divorce?
Collaborative divorce allows the parties to resolve important issues affecting their divorce without stepping foot into a courtroom. In some cases, the parties in a collaborative divorce proceeding can negotiate a settlement in as little as three to six months.
During the collaborative divorce process, collaborative attorneys represent each party while a designated neutral party acts as an intermediary to make sure everyone is cooperating toward reaching a final, agreeable solution. This approach gives the parties more control over the dispute resolution process. The attorneys in a collaborative divorce proceeding do not act in their traditional, more adversarial capacity as they would during litigation. Instead, collaborative divorce attorneys help the parties find a mutual compromise to maximize their legal interests without disadvantaging the other party.
“It’s better for the children. The parents end up learning how to communicate with each other. They learn how to co-parent, and they learn how to move forward and continue on that way,” Ms. Eaton said.
