Barrington IL Collaborative Law Attorney

Lawyer for Collaborative Divorce Serving Fox River Grove, North Barrington and Cary

The word "divorce" often conjures images of an angry couple engaged in a lengthy courtroom battle. For some divorcing couples, this is what the process looks like. This does not have to be your reality.

Collaborative law may be the answer for couples willing to negotiate the terms of their divorce in a more amicable way. It creates a win-win situation, getting you to an end result in a faster, less expensive manner.

At the Barrington, Illinois, law firm of Lucas Law, we have embraced the concept of approaching divorce on a settlement basis. In more than 25 years of family law practice, attorney Joseph M. Lucas has gained the background knowledge and skill necessary to guide divorcing couples through negotiating their differences.

What Is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative law is an up-and-coming way of resolving family law concerns. When it is used in divorce, spouses agree to resolve their differences through negotiation and mediation rather than proceeding to trial.

Each party is represented by legal counsel of their own choosing. The parties meet to develop a divorce or separation agreement, addressing issues including:

If at any point, cordial negotiations break down, the divorcing couple can choose another method of dissolving their marriage. However, they will need to secure different legal counsel. Due to the amount of disclosure involved in collaborative law, it is unethical for either attorney to continue to represent his or her client.

Reasons For Choosing Collaborative Law

Collaborative law allows you and your spouse more control in the outcome of your case. Placing your case in the hands of a judge may result in a divorce decree that does not suit your needs. Also, collaborative law is often faster, easier and less costly option for ending your marriage than more traditional divorce methods.
