Collaborative Divorce is a Practice Model where each party is represented by an attorney but the goal of this Model is to work effectively together as a “team” to draft an Agreement. This is a great option in order to have an attorney working for your interests but also working together with the other side to get things done. This model can also be Inter-disciplinary and involve Financial Neutrals and Support Coaches or Therapists working together as well. One interesting caveats about this Model is that if the Parties cannot agree and the Matter goes to Litigation, all Professionals usually have to resign and all new Professionals take over which adds incentive to settle the Matter outside the Courthouse.
We are often brought into Sessions as a Financial Neutral to work with some of the more complex tax related issues and an equitable distribution. We are also on call for various mediators for other matters such as:
Timing of Divorce- When to finalize-This year or next year?
Filing Status- Joint or Separate Returns and ramifications?
Setting up Estimated payments and Revising Withholdings
Allocating Tax items from Joint Return to Other Status
Tax Projections for each Party to maximize tax savings
Educating a Lesser Involved Spouse- Tax Cash Flows
