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….”
