How Collaborative Divorce Processes Work

In collaborative divorce, the underlying goal is reaching divorce decree agreements without needing to go before a judge to do so. Not only can this process speed up your divorce, it also keeps control of all the decisions in your hands. This is particularly useful for divorces that involve child custody and child support.

To conduct a collaborative divorce, you and your spouse each need to retain a family law attorney to represent you during collaborations. Both or all lawyers sign an agreement to step out of the case if collaborative efforts are not successful and the divorce needs to go to court. This reinforces the idea that cooperation is the priority.

All parties will set a collaboration schedule for meetings, often in a law office. At each meeting, you and your spouse will try to come to agreements on the usual matters that come up in a divorce. You can even have your lawyer act for you if you are not comfortable talking about the legal specifics yourself. Unlike mediation, your Jacksonville collaborative divorce attorney will be there to uphold your best interests, but does so in a way to not spark the conflict and make matters worse.
