Is a collaborative divorce different than mediation?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

Typically, in a collaborative divorce there is no mediator. Instead, the parties and their attorneys work together to negotiate terms. A mediator is an independent, third-party designed to help parties negotiate. In collaborative divorces, a mediator can be used but is generally avoided to help reduce costs.

What are the requirements for a collaborative divorce in Florida?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

Both parties must agree to a collaborative divorce. Before negotiations begin, both the spouses and their attorneys enter into a participation agreement. Under the participation agreement, both parties agree to disclose all relevant information and cooperate with each other to resolve all the issues in the divorce.

Is a collaborative divorce quicker?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

Yes, a collaborative divorce can be much quicker than a contested divorce. A collaborative divorce avoids litigation and court hearings, which can slow down a divorce case. Instead of waiting for a judge, the parties work on their own schedule to resolve the case.
