Do-it-yourself projects have become common and popular among many Florida residents. They include everything from cooking to professional services that a person can learn and execute. A recent report discussed attempting a do-it-yourself divorce in lieu of an organized process like collaborative law and the difficulty that could occur. A family who is concerned about a fair outcome may choose to proceed with their separation with collaborative law to ensure an equal and beneficial outcome.
In divorce situations where there are amicable feelings or the potential to qualify for a no-fault split, many couples may make the decision to look into many options including a do-it-yourself divorce process. For many people with children under the age of 18, it can be almost impossible to qualify for a no-fault divorce. This can be in part due to child custody arrangements and child support payments required to provide a secure and healthy environment for the children. An amicable family can choose to separate with collaborative law to ensure that custody and support arrangements are determined in the best interest of the child and not with an internet template. A DIY divorce can typically not provide a couple with the tools necessary to adequately negotiate visitation, alimony or child support.
