Excerpt from attached –

The Florida Bar (the bar) and the Florida Family Law Rules Committee (the committee), Honorable Laurel Moore Lee, Chair, respectfully petition this Court to adopt proposed Rule Regulating The Florida Bar 4-1.19 and proposed Florida Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.745 (the rules) to create procedures for the collaborative law process established by Chapter 2016-93, Laws of Florida (the act), in dissolution of marriage, paternity, and other family law actions. The bar and the committee have filed this time-sensitive out-of-cycle petition because adoption of these rules is required by the act to make the legislation effective. Once effective, these rules will help implement the collaborative law process legislation enacted by the Florida legislature and permit education of lawyers about the collaborative law process.
