Collaborative Law Attorney in Boise, Idaho
Effective Resolution Without Litigation
Collaborative law in divorce and child custody dispute resolution is relatively new in Idaho. In other states, lawyers and their clients have been resolving family law cases collaboratively for nearly two decades. Collaborative law is, in fact, a worldwide movement, meeting the needs of people engaged in family law matters in Canada, Australia and many other countries.
Our offices offer Idahoans the same opportunity to avoid costly and stressful divorce and custody litigation.
If you are seeking a fair, rational and low-conflict divorce, collaborative law may provide powerful, down-to-earth solutions. Your unique situation calls for a personalized solution. The right collaborative divorce attorney can help maintain an atmosphere of safety and civility as you and your husband, wife or domestic partner negotiate important details and avoid courtroom unpleasantries. Contact the Everman Law Office to schedule a free 30-minute consultation to help you consider whether a collaborative approach is best in your case.
To quote from guidelines publicized by the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, you and your spouse may be good candidates for collaborative law if the following ring true for you:
I want to maintain the tone of respect, even when we disagree.
I want to prioritize the needs of our children.
My needs and those of my spouse [or partner] require equal consideration, and I will listen objectively.
I believe that working creatively and cooperatively solves issues.
It is important to reach beyond today's frustration and pain to plan for the future.
I can behave ethically toward my spouse [or partner].
I choose to maintain control of the divorce process with my spouse [or partner], and not relegate it to the courts.
In a collaborative divorce, the parties control the process and the outcome, rather than rely on the court to make vital decisions. In this nonadversarial approach to divorce, support and property division, the couple agrees to act respectfully, to communicate openly with each other and to set mutually agreed-upon timetables.
A further benefit of the collaborative divorce process is that family details discussed during the process are kept completely private, rather than aired at trial.

At the beginning of the process, both parties agree to try and solve their issues together rather than before the court. Each party is represented by his or her own attorney, who works to facilitate an amicable agreement that is mutually beneficial and fair. Consulting professionals including financial planners, child psychologists and marriage counselors may contribute valuable insights.
If all else fails, there is always an option to undergo a more traditional divorce with new attorneys.
