Collaborative Divorce: Keeping Your Private Life Private

Not every divorce needs to go the traditional route of a day in court. For some couples who prefer to keep their affairs private, a collaborative divorce offers the flexibility, personal empowerment and privacy they need.

At Trotto Law Firm, P.C. firm principal Jonathan Trotto and staff understand your need to be heard, to have control over the process and to protect your family from anything embarrassing, damaging or harmful. We offer collaborative divorce for those couples who want to reduce conflict, contention and public scrutiny.

How Collaborative Divorce Is Different

Besides there being no courtroom and no judge, a collaborative divorce differs from a traditional divorce in several ways. These ways include:

  • Both sides and both lawyers work toward resolution.
  • Each party gets to respectfully speak their piece.
  • The wants and needs of both parties are considered.
  • Parties work to find compromise to keep the process moving forward.
  • The process is more flexible than a court trial.
  • The process is less contentious and more beneficial to children.
  • The divorcing couple has control over what happens during the process.
  • The process is private.

Collaborative divorce is private divorce negotiation. You will work with a team of experts and professions who offer support and guidance through the process. If both you and your spouse are willing to work together to find the best resolution for the family, then collaborative divorce may be the better option. Some couples have issues that are best addressed in traditional litigation.
