I started the collaborative process for my pending divorce, but I’m not happy. We’ve been going at this for months and I feel like we have not made any progress. Can I just stop the process and pursue litigation?
It’s always disappointing when a process you have started does not work out. The collaborative process can be great, but is certainly not for everyone. You should consult with your individual attorney and review what you have already accomplished. Your attorney will likely be honest with you about whether or not you have made significant progress and whether you should try to move forward to finalize it, or, in the alternative, if the process is stalled, he or she may actually recommend that you cease the process and commence litigation. Make sure that you understand the pros, cons, and of course, any potential delays that this may cause in your matter.
