Helping You Overcome Life’s Most Difficult Legal Challenges

What Is Cooperative Divorce?

Cooperative divorce is a divorce process in which both parties enter the process with the reasoned expectation of settlement. Unlike collaborative divorce, in the event that settlement-based negotiations break down, court intervention is still allowed in cooperative divorces with each party continuing to have the ability to retain their counsel. Schmidlkofer, Toth, Loeb & Drosen, LLC, has helped clients throughout Wisconsin understand the process.

How Does Collaborative Divorce Compare With Cooperative Divorce?

Unlike collaborative divorce which dictates that the only time you go to court is at the end of a stipulated divorce hearing, cooperative divorce does not preclude judicial intervention at any point in the divorce process. In a collaborative divorce, the parties risk losing their counsel should the parties be unable to settle. While it seems complicated, we can help you understand how this process can be beneficial.

Much like collaborative divorce, cooperative divorce fosters a framework of efficiency and cooperation. Parties are urged to agree thus limiting necessary expenditures. They are part of a process that fosters the free exchange of information and avoids unnecessary formality whenever possible. In a cooperative divorce, a lawyer simply asks for the information that is necessary, and it is provided.
