Longwood Collaborative Divorce Attorney

Not all divorce matters are the sensationalized and dramatic experiences you see on television and in movies. The reality is that many divorces never even make it to the courtroom. Some are resolved through collaborative efforts. Known as collaborative divorce, this type of amicable divorce is entirely different than what you see in the media. A collaborative divorce attempts to resolve all the outstanding issues in a friendly manner, with both parties compromising. In most cases, a collaborative divorce is the better option and helps couples maintain a civil relationship and less impact their children.

To learn more about collaborative divorce in Florida, speak with our Longwood collaborative divorce attorneys. The skilled team at The Troum Law Firm, P.A. has years of experience helping clients work through a collaborative divorce.

When Does Collaborative Divorce Make Sense?

Divorce is expensive. You could easily spend more than $15,000 going the traditional court route. If your case has to go before a judge to resolve, it can be even more expensive. Most collaborative divorces cost significantly less than traditional divorces that require the judge to render a decision. In addition to the financial savings with collaborative divorce, they can resolve much faster.

These cases don’t go to trial, so they remain off the public record. That means someone can’t go to the courthouse and give your name in hopes of learning all about your divorce proceedings.

The problem with collaborative divorce is that both parties must be in agreement. You need to work together and make compromises. If one party refuses to negotiate and work toward a resolution, the collaborative process won’t work.

If you cannot reach an agreement on all outstanding issues, you both will be required to start over. That also means hiring new attorneys. Neither of you can have the same attorney as you did during a collaborative divorce. That means increased legal fees and more time before you are divorced.

Collaborative Divorce Can Help You Solve Issues Through Negotiation and Compromise

Very few divorces will resolve with both spouses getting everything they wanted. The entire process of divorce is built on giving and taking. A collaborative divorce will help you and your ex settle issues such as the following:

  • Child custody, visitation, and parenting plans;
  • Property distribution;
  • Spousal support; and
  • Child support.

Collaborative divorce can help shield your children from the fallout of divorce. You may think you’re keeping the divorce away from your kids, but they sense more than you realize. A messy divorce can leave a child with depression, low self-esteem, difficulty in school, and episodes of lashing out. You should never say anything negative about your ex in front of your kids. Try to maintain a civil relationship with your ex as it can go a long way in helping your children adjust to the divorce.
