Is collaborative divorce right for you?

Florida couples who want to end their marriages amicably have more options now than ever before. It is no longer necessary to allow a judge to make the decisions. Couples can use mediation or collaborative divorce to devise their own settlement agreement, which can be tailored to their needs and the needs of the entire family.

Most people are familiar with the concept of mediation, but collaborative divorce has only gained popularity in the last few years. The process involves numerous professionals, such as attorneys, counselors and financial advisers. They form a team that helps the parties come to a mutually beneficial and satisfactory agreement. The parties receive as much information as they need in order to devise the best plan possible for taking the family from one household to two.

The parties often enter into an agreement before negotiations begin. Each party agrees to full disclosure, confidentiality and courteous behavior. They agree to negotiate in good faith and to help each other by pointing out if one of them makes a mistake and working together to fix it. An attorney should also represent each party in case there is an irretrievable breakdown in the process.

Many couples around the country and here in Florida have benefited from the collaborative divorce process. With the right guidance and information, the parties have the freedom to think outside the box in the best interests of the whole family. It provides the parties with a safe and amicable environment in which to create a settlement agreement that meets the goals of each party and the family.
