Going through divorce in Florida can be a very expensive proposition. No matter which path you choose for your divorce, you are going to be spending money. However, there are things you can do to reduce your costs.
1. Agree to the Collaborative Family Law Process
The first thing you and your spouse can do is retain collaboratively-trained attorneys and agree to use the collaborative family law process. In the collaborative process, you and your spouse each hire separate attorneys for the sole purpose of helping you reach a settlement. Collaborative attorneys are prevented by contract from engaging in expensive contested courtroom proceedings. Accordingly, they focus their attention – and your resources – on helping you and your spouse come to an agreement, rather than preparing for trial or playing litigation games.
