You may periodically hear on NPR that “Family Diplomacy: A Collaborative Law Firm reminds you that divorce need not be destructive. More information about collaborative divorce can be found at (813) 443-0615 or FamilyDiplomacy.com.”
Collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial, private form of dispute resolution where the parties agree that their attorneys will only be used to help the reach an agreement outside of court. Collaborative attorneys are contractually-barred from engaging in painful, costly, and public litigation. A facilitator, who generally has a mental health license, is oftentimes utilized to ensure that the parties focus on what is most important to them (such as their children) rather than the arguments of the past, and a neutral financial professional is oftentimes used to cut costs on financial disclosure and ensure the parties have a personally-tailored financial solution.
