Collaborative Divorce the Right Option for You?
In the social eye, divorce is typically seen as a true hardship that pits two people against each other. While there are certainly grounds for this assumption, it is not always the case. When both spouses agree that their divorce should be about problem-solving and troubleshooting, and not necessarily about fighting and winning, they can ask that their lawyers use collaborative law to settle things peacefully.
At Peter L. Cedeño & Associates, P.C., we fully understand that mediations and negotiations may be the best route for you to take during your divorce proceedings. Contact us today if you would like to know how we can help you with this process.

In the spirit of working together, both attorneys involved in a collaborative divorce will work together to determine who deserves what portions of your and your spouse’s shared estate, and who has earned what rights as a parent. Common topics include:
Part of what makes collaborative divorce unique is that it involves a “no court” or “participation” agreement. If matters go unresolved despite the cooperation of all parties involved, this agreement directs both attorneys to withdraw from the case and disallows them from going to court in pursuit of litigation. This additional process lends itself to the founding idea that collaborative divorces remain civil and uncomplicated by avoiding the courtroom altogether.
While collaborative divorces are meant to keep fairness and equality in mind, you are not guaranteed that your best interests are on the table. By retaining a New York City divorce lawyer from Peter L. Cedeño & Associates, P.C., you can rest assured knowing that we will represent you and your objectives during all mediations and negotiations while exercising the greatest of care and consideration.
