During the amicable divorce settlement negotiation process, the lawyer and the client look toward problem-solving to avoid court proceedings. The lawyer and client work together to identify and understand their interests and goals as well as those of the other party and to develop creative solutions to difficult issues.
The client and lawyer will work together to bridge the gap between both clients’ interests so that the parties can reach a settlement that may not meet all of their needs and desires but is one that is a fair compromise that balances everyone’s interests.
It is essential in the negotiation process to develop communication patterns that are productive in reaching an amicable divorce settlement. The goal of a lawyer during the negotiation process is to help the clients will reach a legally binding out-of-court settlement in a cooperative environment, minimizing the financial and emotional costs and the unpredictable outcomes of litigation.
