One of the first is time. The collaborative process typically takes a lot less time to go and resolve the family law issue than taking it all the way to a final hearing before a judge. Another factor is cost. Because it takes less time, it, also, takes less litigation hours. That can reduce the cost greatly, as well as the fact that you’ve hired experts jointly, and so you’re reducing the cost by at least half on the amount of experts that you might need to employ to get the information that you need to feel confident in a resolution.
The last and probably the greatest for most benefit is that it’s usually less hostile and less stressful of a process, and at the end, a lot of times the parties are even able to co-parent a little bit better, because they’ve had that assistance of the mental health expert helping them to communicate through that process.
