What's so great about a collaborative divorce?

The collaborative law field has grown in popularity in Fort Lauderdale and other parts of Florida in recent years. One of the reasons that it's become so popular here is because it's an interdisciplinary approach to resolving conflict and settling a divorce. This multipronged approach to conflict resolution tends to help divorcing couples reach agreements that they're more comfortable with than what they can achieve by litigating their divorces.

How can the collaborative law process help me resolve my divorce?

Many Fort Lauderdale spouses delay in filing for divorce because they're concerned about their ability to remain civil during discussions about contentious topics such as child custody and splitting up property. The divorce process doesn't have to be so combative or stressful though thanks to the introduction of Florida's Collaborative Divorce Law. This piece of legislation went into effect in the state on July 1, 2017.

Collaborative law can take the bite out of divorce

Marriage is often treated as a life's moment of greatest joy. New spouses dress up in their finest, spend lavish amounts on entertainment and invite family from around the world to attend their nuptials. So, it is quite understandable that the end of a marriage can carry the same emotional weight. It is just not so positive.

Collaborative divorce: The right step for some Florida couples

You're meeting with an attorney to discuss your upcoming divorce and hear a phrase that is new to you: collaborative divorce. The attorney explains it to you and says you and your soon-to-be-ex could be a candidate for this type of divorce, but you want to learn more before making up your mind.

Hoping for an amicable divorce? Try the collaborative approach

You and your spouse have decided you no longer work as a married couple. You decide to part amicably, remain friends and raise your kids together. You want to agree on child custody, support, property division - well, everything - on your own.

The team approach to a collaborative law divorce

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.

Reasons why a collaborative law divorce might not be successful

If you and your spouse are planning to divorce, you are probably researching ways to get the job done. The law today offers more options than ever before for couples to end a marriage. Collaborative law is one such method that can be less stressful for couples divorcing in Florida, but it might not work for everyone.
