FL FAQ/Collaborative Law

There are six attributes required in collaborative divorce. One is disclosure of documents. The couple must agree that no information will be hidden. In traditional divorce, the hurdle is completing the documentation and discovery, but with the collaborative process, the couple agrees that everything will be transparent. Secondly, they agree to maintain respect for each other. Thirdly, they agree to insulate the children from involvement in these issues. Fourth, they will be sharing experts and splitting the cost. These are win-win solutions. The couple agrees to use good faith in the negotiation to reach a mutually acceptable settlement and avoid court.
