Pursuing a Collaborative Divorce

Jacksonville Divorce Attorney Offers Guidance

While divorces are typically considered to be bitter battles between ex-spouses, Jacksonville divorce attorneys at our office know that this does not have to be the case. In many situations there are spouses who no longer wish to be married, but who do not want to fight in a courtroom setting over each and every detail. For couples like this, there are solutions and alternatives. One of the gentlest forms of divorce is that of a collaborative divorce, but you have to make sure that it is right for your situation.

This form of divorce began in the 1990's in Wisconsin – the concept was so popular among divorcing parties that it quickly spread to the west coast and has found its way throughout the nation. Should a couple choose to partake in a collaborative divorce, they will agree to sign what is known as a Participation Agreement. Upon signing this, they (and their attorney) will work with the other side to come to an agreement that is agreed upon by both sides.

By avoiding hearings, depositions and any bitter courtroom battles, both parties can protect both themselves and their families as they find their own way through the divorce process.

To safeguard against the possibility of one of the sides backing out and trying to take the other to court, there is an agreement to find a new attorney should the process fail. While this can be difficult, the benefits can often outweigh any costs.

Avoid a Contested Divorce with Our Help

Both the Florida Supreme Court and the Florida Bar have approved of the collaborative divorce process. By avoiding a contested divorce, both parties can save themselves financial and emotional stress – and can help make the process as painless as possible for any children involved.
