Relationships are complex. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to divorce and other family law cases that works for everyone. New family law dispute resolution approaches are being used as Florida law continues to shift and develop. The goal is to help parties reach a conclusion that supports their best interests.
Collaborative family law is a relatively new approach to alternative dispute resolution. It allows both parties to work together in a collaborative format before litigation begins. It helps parties craft the terms of their divorce agreement according to their specific goals and needs. In order to do this, both parties and their attorneys hire neutral mental health and financial advisers who work as a team to settle their divorce without a lawsuit.
Unlike mediation, in collaborative family law, the goal is to settle all issues before any litigation costs even begin. In fact, if you cannot settle your case through the collaborative approach, you must go to court. This often serves as great motivation for individuals who seek to avoid court costs and delays.
