The advantages of working toward a collaborative divorce

As a Florida resident, divorce may be one of the most stressful events you can experience because it affects so many facets of your life. From agreeing on custody points to dividing up belongings, the process can be emotionally draining, especially if you and your spouse cannot agree on many of the decisions you must make. At Sheldon E. Finman, P.A., Attorney at Law, it is our goal to guide clients through collaborative divorces in order to reduce emotional strain for both spouses. 

While you and your partner have agreed to a divorce, it may be difficult to avoid the types of arguments that cause hurt feelings and lifelong resentment. The Huffington Post reports that collaborative divorce may be a better option, especially if you and your spouse must maintain a relationship to co-parent your children. Under this type of agreement, both married individuals avoid a courtroom battle and end their marriage in a way that is fair and free of drama. In most cases, couples include divorce coaches and other qualified experts in the proceedings, which can make this process simpler and easier to understand. 

A divorce can be especially strenuous when children are involved. However, if you agree to a collaborative divorce, you, your spouse and your kids can take advantage of the coaching specialists and learn how to speak to each other in a way that is calm and productive. 

It may seem almost impossible to avoid stress and pain when your marriage is ending, but collaboration often eases the strain. For more information about the finer points of collaborative divorce, please visit our website.
