Pursuing a Collaborative Divorce
Jacksonville Divorce Attorney Offers Guidance
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.
