A collaborative divorce is kind of a new thing in Florida. It originated in Texas and California. It allows parents to make the decisions throughout the divorce rather than relying on the court to make any decision. The parents agree and you might think that’s difficult, if the parents could agree we wouldn’t be getting a divorce. The reality is with the help of professionals in a collaborative setting, parents usually make the best decisions and spouses usually make the best decisions for their family’s best interest far better than a court on a limited time frame with limited evidence. Collaborative divorce allows you to take the time necessary to make the most intelligent decision for your family.
