Does Collaborative Divorce have a winner and a loser like litigation?

Litigation often has a winner and a loser. Collaborative Divorce, by contrast, seeks a middle ground that works well enough for everyone—hopefully, a ‘win-win’.

Collaborative Divorce, like any process, can have conflict, setbacks and disappointments. And compromises, though mostly good, can feel mixed: “I had to give up something to get something.”

The overarching benefit in Collaborative Divorce—what makes it more a win than a loss—is that each person’s chief concerns are heard, attended to, and incorporated into the final agreement.
