Rancho Cucamonga Collaborative Divorce Attorney
Understanding Collaborative Divorce in California
One option when divorce becomes a reality is to consider a collaborative divorce. In a collaborative divorce, both spouses must agree to participate and offer full disclosure. There can be no hidden surprises in a collaborative divorce. The best interests of all involved, including children, must be considered and the two spouses eventually come to a mutual agreement on the terms of dissolving their marriage. Collaborative divorces never go to court. As a matter of fact, the legal counsel for both parties must agree to never litigate or threaten litigation. If a mutual agreement cannot be met, the spouses must seek out alternative legal counsel for divorce proceedings in a courtroom. At the Law Office of Gary S. Austin, I can provide you the guidance as an experienced Rancho Cucamonga collaborative divorce attorney. You can trust that I can provide sound legal counsel and assistance throughout every step of the collaborative divorce process, focusing on reaching agreeable terms.

How Collaborative Divorce Is Different From Traditional Divorce
Collaborative divorce proceedings are far different than typical courtroom divorces. Both parties agree to work together to come to terms with their divorce and cooperate with one another with regard to creating a visitation schedule for the children and dispersing assets.
Other professionals may be involved in a collaborative divorce, such as:
- Legal counsel for both spouses
- Psychologists for both spouses
- Child life specialists (if children are involved)
- Financial specialists
