Rather than go straight to the divorce, couples can choose alternate routes to resolving their differences. Using the collaborative process or mediation can soften the harsh nature of divorce, and for couples not entirely committed to divorce, counseling can help the parties toward resolution.

#CollaborativeLaw - the parties each hire an attorney trained in collaborative law and agree in writing to not allow their case to proceed to trial. The tenets of the collaborative process:

a.) the parties pledge not to litigate their disputes in court they pledge to honestly and voluntarily exchange information in a prompt and good-faith manner
b.) the attorneys resolve to arrive at solutions that take into account the couples' highest priorities and those of their children

Mediation - The parties hire a neutral mediator who is trained in facilitating compromise and agreement. Mediators are often lawyers specifically trained in conflict resolution.

Counseling - Used by couples who haven't entirely closed the door on reconciliation.

Vermont has replaced the term Child Custody and replaced it with Parental Rights and Responsibilities. In deciding the allocation of the children's time between each parent, the court will weigh a variety of factors, including whether or not each parent is willing able and capable of fostering a frequent and positive relationship with the other parent.
