How It Works
In a Florida collaborative divorce, both parties agree to resolve all issues without litigating. Each party generally enlists the services of an attorney who protects his or her client’s interests while negotiating agreements. Issues are addressed in a series of meetings that involve both parties, their lawyers and, if necessary, other specially trained neutrals.
If a resolution cannot be reached in any area, both attorneys agree to withdraw from the case. They can help their clients find new representation, but they cannot represent those clients, even if a decision is made to use more traditional court proceedings.
The collaborative process relies on clear, comprehensive communication between both parties and their lawyers. Benefits include:
- Enhanced confidentiality regarding your agreements
- Both parties retain more control over the look and feel of their post-divorce lives
- Helps both parties maintain strong relationships with their children
- Reduced risk of a party not following through on a time-sharing or other agreement
- Generally costs less than resolving issues in court
