Divorce is an experience that will impact your family in a profound way. The process may leave you feeling emotionally battered and drained, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

The attorneys at Donnellan & Knussman, PLLC offer a solution – collaborative divorce – that seeks to minimize the trauma and stress that you and your family might typically experience in the divorce process.

What is Collaborative Divorce?

A collaborative divorce is essentially a no-court divorce process that provides you with a dignified approach to your divorce, giving you more control over your future.

A family focused collaborative divorce is free of the lengthy, contentious court battles that can tear apart a family and disrupt your life. Instead, our divorce lawyers and a team of collaborative professionals will guide you through a more amicable divorce process.

The Collaborative Divorce Process in New York

A collaborative divorce in New York is virtually court-free. The only required court appearance is a brief, uncontested hearing where you and your former spouse will finalize your divorce agreement.

A collaborative divorce will focus on two main priorities:

  • Your child’s well-being; issues of child custody, child support and child visitation will be discussed.
  • Your financial security; ensure a fair distribution of marital property, provide information about protecting your assets and establish spousal support.

Is Collaborative Divorce Right For You?

A New York collaborative divorce works best under certain situations and circumstances. Listed below are a few indicators that a collaborative divorce might be a positive choice for you and your spouse:

  • You both agree and accept that the marriage is at an end;
  • There is no issue of abuse or intimidation in the relationship;
  • You want your children to maintain a strong and healthy relationship with both you and your spouse; and
  • You believe that you and your spouse will be able to compromise in some aspects of the divorce.

Our Collaborative Divorce Team Guides You Through The Process

Collaborative Divorce utilizes a team approach to resolving the issues in your matter. In addition to your respective divorce attorneys, you will work with a team of collaborative professionals who are specially trained to help you achieve the best solutions. Your collaborative divorce team may consist of:

  • Child specialist – Ensures that your child’s needs and fears are addressed and given a strong voice throughout the divorce process.
