What is collaborative divorce in Tampa Florida?
Collaborative divorce is a process where you have a lot of different professionals that come together to try to help you resolve all of the issues in your case. You don’t start with litigation, you start with both parties trying to work out an agreement. You have the financial planner that comes in to talk about the assets, you have the parenting coordinator that comes in that talks about and helps you come to an agreement with the kids, etc. Initially you enter into an agreement with your spouse that you will not file a petition during this whole process and if you cannot agree, you must hire new attorneys. If you do eventually have to go to litigation then you start over with a new attorney Collaborative divorce is not advantageous in most cases though unless extremely complicated and in need of professional involvement as it can become very expensive. Even if cases start off contested, often they settle in mediation or between the parties before litigation. All Family Law Group, P.A. offers a free consultation to address and discuss your concerns.
