Collaborative Law Attorney in Georgia

Collaborative law is an emerging alternative to traditional divorce. Through this process, couples work together with the support of experienced professionals to settle their divorce out of court in a manner that is best for their family, minimizing a divorce's cost and time.

At the Atlanta, Georgia, law practice of Jody A. Miller, we recognize the importance of collaborative law and recommend it as an alternative method for clients whose cases may benefit from the process. We understand that each client's situation is different and some couples need a family court judge to settle disputes. Contact us to schedule an appointment about what role collaborative law can play in your divorce.

The Collaborative Law Process

Collaborative law is an innovative approach to resolving a divorce in a cooperative and non-litigious environment. All parties agree at the onset to avoid litigation and fully disclose all assets, liabilities, and other relevant information. During the process, the couple works with a team of professionals to resolve divorce related issues.

The primary players are the spouses, divorce coaches, neutral child specialists, and neutral financial planners. The child specialists help the parties create a parenting plan addressing the issues of custody and parenting time. The financial planners address the financial issues involved in alimony, property division, and debt division. The divorce coaches help support and guide the parties through the emotional aspect of divorce.

While collaborative law attempts to reduce the participation of lawyers in the actual negotiation process, they still play an important role in the overall process. They deal with emergency custody issues and financial issues and are available to answer legal questions throughout the process. After the collaborative law process is complete, we will review and draft the settlement and divorce agreement. We will then present it before a family court judge for approval.
