What you should know about a collaborative divorce

On Behalf of | Mar 22, 2021 | Divorce Mediation |

If you’re a Florida resident and are seriously considering divorce, collaborative divorce is a viable option. A collaborative divorce is a modern approach to divorce that does not involve heated disputes over properly, assets, or child custody. This option is best for couples who don’t want to make divorce proceedings any more complicated than they have to be.

A lawyer will help you through the process

If you choose a collaborative divorce, your attorney will support you through the process and provide helpful advice. However, your lawyer agrees to resolve your case without going to court. Collaborative divorce is a negotiation that offers suitable outcomes for both parties.

In addition to an attorney, you’ll also be working with a professional team who will help you and your spouse come out of the divorce as emotionally healthy as possible, even though you may not feel that way at the start of the divorce proceedings.

You and your spouse can select the family law attorney you’d like to work with to represent your best interests and offer a non-confrontational approach to divorce if this is appropriate.

Working with a mental health professional in a collaborative divorce

During a collaborative divorce, you’ll also work with a mental health professional who will coach you through the process. The coach will help you process the range of emotions you’ll likely feel during this time. Since the coach is familiar with family dynamics, they will help you find emotional triggers that can hinder divorce negotiations.

A Florida collaborative divorce lawyer can help move your divorce proceedings further without controversial tactics that make a difficult situation even more challenging. Contact a qualified lawyer today to find out how you can complete the divorce process without going to court.
