Collaborative Divorce Could Save You (Time and Money)

Divorce is a reality for couples across Kentucky, the country, and beyond. It’s a legal separation of two individuals who are no longer able to proceed with their marriage. If you’re reading this, it’s likely because you and your partner can no longer progress as a legally bound couple.

Even if your relationship has soured, however, your divorce does not need to go down the unfortunate, expensive, and time-consuming path of an ugly court battle. Thankfully, you don’t need to drag your private matters through the mud of litigation.

At Hoffman Walker & Knauf, we advocate for a collaborative approach to divorce, aiming to spare you the ordeal of a courtroom battle. This method not only respects your privacy but also aims to save you time and money in your Kentucky divorce case.

What is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative divorce, as the term suggests, is a method where you and your spouse, with the assistance of your attorneys, work together to resolve the legal issues surrounding the end of your marriage. You both are able to retain control over the entire process instead of handing it over to a judge or jury.

This process is about finding common ground on important matters such as:

  • Division of assets
  • Child custody & visitation
  • Child support
  • Spousal maintenance (alimony)
  • & any other legal matters

Hoffman Walker & Knauf’s approach to collaborative divorce combines compassion with reliability, ensuring a legal professional adeptly handles the specifics of your case, applying relevant laws and statutes uniquely tailored to your situation.

Keep Your Business Private

A significant advantage of opting for a collaborative divorce is the privacy it offers. There’s no need to discuss the intimate details of your life and marriage in a public courtroom in front of dozens of strangers.

This aspect is particularly crucial for those who have experienced trauma and wish to avoid retraumatization in a legal setting. Our team prioritizes maintaining the dignity and privacy of our clients in Northern Kentucky, ensuring that while your personal life might be taking an unexpected turn, it remains respected and protected.

Saving Time for You and Your Loved Ones

Traditional divorce litigation can be a lengthy process, often stretching over months. It involves multiple hearings, extensive document submissions, and trial dates, all of which demand significant time investment.

Choosing a collaborative divorce allows you to bypass these time-consuming steps if you and your spouse agree on your separation terms. This not only conserves your time but also spares your children and family members the emotional strain and logistical demands of appearing in court proceedings.
