Your Rights During A Divorce

At The Law Collaborative, we believe that couples going through the divorce process have certain unalienable rights. These include:

  1. The right to full disclosure of all pertinent financial information in creating your own divorce agreement from a place of mutual satisfaction.
  2. The right to decide what values and interest you need respected and considered while receiving an equitable division of property.
  3. The right to a spousal support amount that takes into consideration mutual benefits and needs, as well as all factors including earnings, earning capabilities, and the length of the marriage.
  4. The right to a child support amount that adequately meets your mutual concerns and objectives for your children, is consistent with the resources available, and your other needs and goals.
  5. The right to create a parenting plan that is respectful of the time availability of both parents, is in the best interest of your children, and allows you to be the best parent possible.
  6. The right to have your feelings, thoughts, fears, and emotional needs listened to and validated while participating in a dialogue, not a monologue.
  7. The right to address all issues without intimidation or duress, while evaluating the full cost of divorce – legal, economic, emotional, and is in the best interest of your children.
  8. The right to a process and agreement that will enable you to create separate lives without interference, that enables you to move on so you can have the most beneficial “new life” you are capable of creating.
  9. The right to receive support and advice from the professionals you think you need in order to reach an agreement that addresses all aspects of your legal, financial, emotional, and parenting concerns.
  10. The right to be part of a divorce process that allows you to maintain your dignity and integrity, and is congruent with your spiritual values.
