It’s been a long winter and a bad year with your divorce, and it’s finally time to relax.

collaborative divorceBy Jennifer M. Paine

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

While researching your divorce options, chances are you will come across the collaborative divorce model. 

As a model, it is relatively new, dating from the mid-1990s from the Midwest, when a group of family court attorneys and experts committed to collaborating with each other for a divorcing family, rather than against each other.

Pockets of collaborative lawyers popped up across the county touting a new option for families that were facing the throes of divorce court and the prospect of paying a lot of money on lawyers and trials while their homes fell into foreclosure and the economy crumbled.  

The theory was at least in a collaborative divorce these families would spend less, avoid court, and divorce in a more amicable and less costly manner.

where to file divorceBy Jennifer M. Paine

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

There are two concepts that interplay when choosing where to file for divorce.

The first is subject matter jurisdiction. Subject matter jurisdiction refers to the court’s reach/jurisdiction over the topic/subject of your case. In other words, you must file your case in a court that handles divorces and not, for example, in probate or small claims court.

Given options for filing, what should you do? Ask these five questions:

temporary separationBy Jennifer M. Paine

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

If you’re thinking about a temporary separation to see if your marriage is reconcilable, then you’ve probably read our articles about the risks.

On the one hand, a temporary separation allows you and your wife some space to think about what you each truly want out of your marriage.

On the other hand, a temporary separation can easily transform into a new, and bad, status quo, one in which you have doubled your living expenses and have removed yourself from your children, if you have them, and/or have set a pattern of supporting your soon-to-be-ex.

While they may be helpful for the short run, every day must bring the two of you closer together or further apart – otherwise, the risks of confusing your children, establishing a support pattern, and setting expectations that you will be the secondary or “visiting” parent take over.

Here are three less obvious, but just as common risks you should consider about a temporary separation:
