What Is The Collaborative Divorce Process?
The collaborative divorce process is a novel approach to divorce that disincentives conflict. Choosing to go through a collaborative divorce is a message that you want this process to work; you want to come to an amicable agreement. You want an attorney who believes in the process wholeheartedly.
At my firm, Pamela Fero Law, PLLC, I work to provide clients from Fort Lauderdale and across South Florida with compassionate guidance through their divorce. I often find that the most challenging and demanding issues in a divorce can find a peaceful resolution in the collaborative process. It is one of my recommendations for many clients.
How Collaborative Divorce Works
The critical issue in a collaborative divorce is the emphasis on working together. Both sides come to have their legal counsel, but there are neutral parties there, representing both mental health and financial specialties. In meetings, all the parties work to develop a divorce settlement that takes all the matters of a divorce, including:
- Emotional conflicts
- Financial needs
- Living arrangements
- Child care issues
Furthermore, if the negotiation fails, none of the professionals, including the collaborative law attorneys, may continue working on the case.
The reason for these measures is to allow clients to experience trust in the process. All individuals have to buy in and work to get a result, or it doesn’t work. In my experience as an attorney, I find that some of the most thoughtful and long-lasting solutions have come from the collaborative process.
