The Collaborative Process is an option to resolve a Dissolution of Marriage that many are unfamiliar with. The concept has been around for almost twenty years, so it is not a new one, yet was enacted into Florida Law only recently.
The Collaborative Process helps “participants” and their families settle their case through a harmonious, efficient, and less expensive route. With this choice, individuals search for and retain collaboratively trained attorneys first, and don’t initiate their case by filing documents in Court. Once participants hire their respective attorneys, the lawyers will communicate with one other and think about what other professionals could make up the team for these individuals.
Some important facts about the collaborative process:
This option provides those who choose it an opportunity to resolve their divorce in a way that helps the family mend while staying agreeable instead of terminating their relationship as enemies. It also can eliminate misunderstandings that can result in emotional unrest as well as financial difficulties.

A good divorce lawyer is responsible for assisting their client’s through the divorce process by instructing them on the different laws and the impact of those laws on their specific case.
A divorce lawyer explains how the application of Florida law in their case affects the dividing of assets as well as how matters related to children are determined by Florida Law. If and when appropriate, a divorce attorney can counsel a client when it may be necessary to hire a financial expert, like a forensic accountant, to assist with the financial portion of their case; or alternately when a child specialist is required to look at what would be in the best interest of the minor child.
