In many cases, couples seeking a collaborative law divorce are able to accomplish all of their goals without bringing in outside team members. In these divorces, the couple and their individual attorneys work together to sever marital ties in a way that is fair to both spouses. Other times, couples may choose to take a team approach to the collaborative law divorce process.
Our attorneys want couples in Florida to understand that there is no right or wrong approach to collaborative divorce. As long as each spouse is committed to the process and to the fair treatment of one another, they typically succeed in meeting their goals. However, for those considering the team approach, we want to give you two examples of team members to consider.
Many couples benefit from adding a financial specialist to their team. This person can help couples address their current financial situation as well as any future money issues that may arise. Because the specialist remains neutral throughout the process, both spouses have an equal opportunity to address any financial concerns they may have.
Couples divorcing with children often want to bring a child specialist into the team. This can ensure that a child's needs and best interests remain in focus through the duration of the collaborative law process. This type of specialist helps couples address child custody and other important issues that typically affect the children of divorce.
We understand how difficult divorce can be for all involved parties. As such, we support parents who seek assistance with a collaborative divorce outside of guidance from their attorneys.
