Divorcing your spouse may be more complicated than it was in the past. You definitely have more options available, including collaborative law, mediation, and the traditional court system. It is not always easy for you to take the time needed for determining the best divorce process available to you when you are in the midst of the life you are accustomed to falling to pieces. But the divorce process will lead to better results and be easier for you if you make the right choice. Our collaborative law attorney in Orlando offers you the beneficial features of the collaborative law process to help you determine if it is the right choice for your specific situation.
A collaborative law process is often an excellent option for couples who hope to maintain a good relationship after divorcing. The procedures and values that you are expected to commit to during collaborative law offer the opportunity to maintain an amicable partnership after the process concludes. This is particularly essential for divorcing spouses who share minor children and want to co-parent well. Moving on to the business of co-parenting after being partners in a marriage can be challenging for most people. Commonly, couples experience confusion, disappointment, mistrust, betrayal, anger, pain, and grief after a marriage. The co-parenting transition is usually not easy. Collaborative law is designed to allow attention to family and individual concerns and needs, fairness, transparency, trust, and safety so that co-parents can build their newly defined relationship on solid ground.
Participants of the collaborative law process do not hire their own conflicting experts. Instead, if a couple requires expert advice to handle appraisals, taxes, or children, they obtain joint experts in such fields. These experts become a part of the couple’s team in the collaborative law process and work with everyone involved to solve the problems. The experts’ opinions and information are discussed and shared among the entire team.
Governing law is not the sole basis of consideration but a factor you can regard in the collaborative law process. A couple keeps the freedom to create an agreement that works well for them based on factors they consider to be essential. Indeed, one of the most critical considerations is whether you feel the agreement is fair. In court, this factor is entirely irrelevant.
Spouses often enter the process of divorce with distrust toward their partner. They need a process that requires transparency and openness. Full transparency is demanded by collaborative law. Clients must exchange all financial records and fully disclose all their finances. Their attorneys also commit to fairness and transparency. Lawyers will not take advantage of another attorney’s errors without their client's consent. Instead, all participants will be made aware of the error, so taking advantage of another party's mistake is not an element of reaching an agreement. This supports the goal to reach an agreement that reflects the needs of all parties involved.
These are just a few of the reasons you should consider collaborative law for your divorce. Contact us today to speak with a collaborative law attorney in Orlando and keep the divorce process amicable.
