What is Collaborative Divorce?

Collaborative Divorce is a peaceful process to resolve divorce.

The Collaborative Divorce Process engages a professional team consisting of a lawyer for each spouse plus financial and facilitation neutrals to help you: learn everything you need to know to make the best decisions about your future; retain control over your divorce or other family matters; keep your dispute private; plan a better future for your re-structured family; instead of battling each other in court.

The following information was put together by FACP to help you better understand the Collaborative Process and how it may help you.

What Florida is Saying About Collaborative:
“There are a lot of reasons to like Collaborative Divorce. Divorce is one of the worst times in anyone’s life. By the time someone consults an attorney they are wrapped up in anger, fear and regret. The Collaborative Team helps craft a comprehensive, tailor made Marital Settlement Agreement; the neutrals empower spouses to creatively redefine a positive vision for their future. All that without an expensive, exhausting, stressful, time consuming, anger driven courtroom battle. What’s not to like?”
Julia Best Chase, Esq. , The Law Offices of Julia Best Chase, P.A.
“Collaborative Divorce is constructive work. One client told me, ‘I was surprised that we were able to listen to each other as well as we did. The professionals were active in helping us hear each other.’ Another remarked, ‘The process gave me insight. The team cleared up any questions we had. We were goal centered and common ground was easy to find.’ Another said, ‘The most amazing thing was how we were all on the same team, the neutrals and our lawyers –and both of us–just trying to get this resolved. I learned how to communicate with him,to calm down, and to think about the words I would say that could make our discussion better….”
