Need to keep divorce costs down? Collaborative law might help

The number of "gray" divorces has continued to climb. Unfortunately, the costs of dissolving a marriage later in life can be a significant factor in the decision to file a petition for divorce. Though Florida residents who are preparing for a divorce after a lengthy marriage may worry about the costs, there are ways to reduce the expense, including choosing a collaborative law approach.

Collaborative law divorce can provide 2 most basic needs

When spouses realize that their relationship has run its course, there are two basic needs for each party to have during a divorce. These are: someone to advocate for their needs and extensive documentation. Florida residents who are preparing for a divorce might meet both of these needs through a collaborative law approach if their situation lends itself to such a process.

Collaborative law divorce is one option that may fit many couples

When a marriage is no longer sustainable, the next logical step is to file for a divorce. Depending on the particular circumstances, there is a divorce path that will best meet one's needs. Florida residents have several options, including a collaborative law approach. 

Collaborative law divorce allows for a more peaceable settlement

When a couple is headed for a divorce, one of the last words that come to mind is peaceful or amiable. In fact, it is often the lack of these two elements that may have played a role in the decision to divorce. However, for Florida residents who wish to avoid much of the hostility of a typical divorce, a collaborative law approach works well.

Could a collaborative law approach to divorce work for you?

While the decision to marry may be impetuous, filing for divorce requires careful deliberation. The mental picture of the divorce process involves courtrooms and bitter fighting. However, there are various avenues to seeking a divorce, and many Florida residents may find that a collaborative law approach meets their needs.

A collaborative law approach can make divorce more civil

When one hears the word divorce, it is likely that the images that come to mind involve warring spouses facing off in a courtroom. Unfortunately, when many Florida couples are headed for a divorce, both the spouses and their children often endure an emotionally exhausting ordeal. When possible, a collaborative law approach can help make the process as civil as possible.

A collaborative law divorce may help reduce the pain for children

The decision to end a faltering marriage is not without its own difficulties. Though many may think that the hardest part is behind them, for some Florida couples, the process of divorcing may expose both spouses and children to even more conflict and discord. For those situations where its appropriate, a collaborative law dissolution may enable spouses to find a more peaceful resolution for all involved.

Collaborative law divorce can ease some of the financial pain

Those who are on the verge of filing for a divorce will face many difficult decisions. The entire process can leave one hurting, not just emotionally but financially as well. Florida residents who are beginning the divorce process may wish to consider whether a collaborative law approach would be a viable option.

A collaborative law divorce may make process less painful

As another year winds down and children look forward to the holiday seasons, not every family is focused on upholding family traditions. Instead, there may be many Florida families who are preparing for a divorce with all of the anticipated work and stress that often accompanies the process. For those whose circumstances allow, a collaborative law divorce may help ease the some of the stress for all of the parties involved.

Collaborative law is changing the face of divorce for many

The prospect of filing for a divorce may conjure images of cold courtrooms, harried judges and warring spouses. However, recently there has been an effort to revise the approach that many couples take when choosing to end a potentially unhappy marriage. Collaborative law divorces may allow Florida residents an opportunity to untie the knot without becoming completely undone emotionally and financially.
