Family Diplomacy: A Collaborative Law Firm is proud to announce that we now accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. If you are looking to pay for your Collaborative Divorce, Mediation, Prenuptial Agreement, Adoption, Name Change, or other family law matter via digital currency, we can help.
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a digital currency that is not controlled by any country. According to CNET.com, Bitcoin is “decentralized — there’s no government, institution (like a bank) or other authority that controls it. Owners are anonymous; instead of using names, tax IDs, or social security numbers, bitcoin connects buyers and sellers through encryption keys. And it isn’t issued from the top down like traditional currency; rather, bitcoin is “mined” by powerful computers connected to the internet.”

So I Can Pay For My Divorce Via Bitcoin?
Yes, Family Diplomacy is one of the first family law firms in the Tampa Bay area to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment for Collaborative Divorce, Mediation, and other family law services. When you are ready to pay for your initial retainer, subsequent retainer, or other fees owed, we will provide you with an e-mail, link, or QR Code which you can use to make payment.
What Other Cryptocurrencies Do You Accept?
Besides Bitcoin, we currently also accept Bitcoin Cash, Ripple/XRP, Ethereum, and USD Tokens.
What is Collaborative Divorce?
Collaborative Divorce is a form of out-of-court dispute resolution that can be especially attractive to cryptocurrency investors and enthusiasts. Unlike traditional divorce, Collaborative Divorce resolutions occur in private conference rooms rather than a public courtroom. Collaborative lawyers focus solely on reaching agreements and are prohibited from engaging in damaging trial tactics. The family usually uses a Collaborative Facilitator with a specialty in childhood development, family dynamics, and communication techniques to ensure you reach a holistic agreement tailored to your family’s needs.
