What is collaborative divorce?
A collaborative divorce occurs when spouses are able to work out an agreement without the expense and litigation of trial. It is a process in which you and your spouse negotiate an acceptable agreement with the help of specially trained Tampa collaborative divorce attorneys who advise and assist you in negotiating a settlement agreement.
During the collaborative divorce process, you and your spouse each meet separately with your own attorneys to discuss your concerns, needs and goals. In addition, you and your attorney meet your spouse and his or her attorney on a regular basis to discuss the issues and negotiate solutions. Every issue that can be addressed in a Tampa divorce may also be addressed in Tampa collaborative divorce, including:
Besides your attorneys, a collaborative divorce may also involve other professionals, such as a child custody specialist or accountants who work with us to resolve differing points of view and areas of dispute.
Collaborative divorce benefits all types of spouses
Collaborative divorce is beneficial to all types of families – not just spouses who agree completely on all the issues. Spouses who disagree over property division, support, custody and every issue may also benefit from collaborative divorce because it minimizes conflicts and expenses in several ways:

- Process and exchange of information is voluntary
- Spouses agree on simplified legal procedures, which cuts down expenses and streamlines the overall process
- We negotiate a settlement that works for both of you
Once our Tampa collaborative divorce lawyers are able to help you reach an agreement, we help you obtain a final judgment of divorce through the family court judge.
