Collaborative Divorce: An Analysis by Florida Divorce Attorney Cody Emerson

St. Petersburg, FL- December 5,2016-  Not all divorces are the messy, crying courtroom scene we see in the movies. More couples are using Collaborative Divorce, an amicable divorce resolution technique, to part ways. We reached out to Florida Divorce Attorney Cody Emerson of Emerson Law to learn more about this intriguing process. 

“Collaborative divorce is often less expensive and less stressful than traditional divorce, allowing you to troubleshoot and problem solve your way to a faster and more efficient divorce,” Mr. Emerson explains. 

He warns that Collaborative Divorce may not be right for all cases. “The root of many relationship problems is communication, and if you are unwilling or unable to effectively communicate and come to an amicable resolution, then Collaborative Divorce may not be the right choice for you.” 

Collaborative Divorce relies on the couple’s ability to calmly discuss the matter at hand. Decisions are made in private meetings between the divorcing parties, with their lawyers present. Their lawyers guide the discussion and negotiation, and if needed, bring in neutral experts to assist with the mediation process. While you still have to file final paperwork with the courts, the rest of the process can be done in an office setting, instead of in the courtroom, giving you total control of the process. 

Collaborative Divorce is often a great choice for families with children. It is crucial that divorced parents work together amicably post-divorce, and this process can help those parents learn how to best communicate with each other without getting upset. 

Your Collaborative Divorce participation agreement will typically include a provision stating that the status quo be maintained, so no changes can be made to insurance coverage or other financial matters without the consent of both parties. This allows you to set aside your immediate concerns for your children’s well-being and allows you focus on creating a plan for their future happiness and well-being. 

If you are considering divorce, but want to part on amicable terms, then Collaborative Divorce may be an option for you.
