When a Collaborative Divorce becomes conflictual, a client may wonder: “Would it be easier to let a judge decide?”
One challenge is that a judge may be too busy to take the time to learn what a family truly needs and to create a detailed plan that addresses this. As a result, a judge’s ruling may not always fit the family’s circumstance.
Because judges vary widely in how they approach a case, the outcome depends largely on who presides. People often choose Collaborative Divorce precisely because they want more control over the outcome.
Some conflict in divorce, even a Collaborative Divorce, is not unusual. The clients can generally be helped through whatever difficulties arise by their team of Collaborative Divorce professionals.
