Collaborative Divorce

If phrases such as "no-court divorce" and "divorce with dignity" appeal to you and express guiding principles you believe are right for your case, a collaborative approach to divorce may be the best choice. With increasing frequency, couples divorcing in Florida are choosing this method of amicable dispute resolution and finding that it meets their needs.

Committed To Productive Conflict Resolution · We Can Help You Choose The Best Mode And Method For Your Divorce

Not all family law attorneys are familiar with the collaborative law process. Rebecca H. Fischer of our firm in Broward County is a member of the Collaborative Family Law Institute who has completed extensive training and certification in this discipline. She is also a founding member of the Family Law Cooperative in Hollywood. Ms. Fischer can answer your questions and help you decide whether collaborative law or another approach to your divorce makes the most sense. Key considerations include:

  • Collaborative divorce is a viable solution only for couples who are committed to resolving all issues through negotiation and willing to sign an agreement not to take those issues to court.
  • Both parties will be represented by their own lawyers and, as necessary, neutral financial, mental health and other professionals will participate as part of the overall team seeking to forge solutions and an agreement.
  • People choose collaborative law for important reasons such as the desire to protect children from unnecessary, damaging conflict and their recognition that maintaining respectful communication is in everyone's best interests.
