Collaborative Divorce

In a collaborative divorce both spouses and their attorneys must agree, in writing, to use their best efforts to negotiate a settlement of the divorce action. Both attorneys and both spouses have considerable incentive to successfully conclude acollaborative divorce in tampa negotiated settlement of your case. This is because part of the written agreement requires both attorneys to withdraw from the case should settlement negotiations reach an impasse and contested litigation follow. If a non-attorney expert, such as an accountant, financial planner, mental health counselor or appraiser, be needed then typically a single person is chosen by both sides. The expert will provide unbiased assistance, will favor neither side, and will owe no allegiance to either side. Documents and information must be freely and honestly exchanged. If a resolution is reached, a Marital Settlement is signed, an uncontested divorce action is filed, and a very short uncontested final hearing concludes the divorce action.
