Divorce Attorneys in Boca Raton Serving Palm Beach and Broward Counties

Collaborative Divorce: A Sensible Alternative to Divorce Litigation

Collaborative divorce is a relatively new option that meets the needs of many divorcing couples and the legal professionals who represent them. This process is designed to help the two parties work out their differences instead of fighting them out in court.

Collaborative law divorce was developed in the early 1990s in response to the problems involved in courtroom litigation, an adversarial process that can be financially risky and personally damaging, especially when children are involved.

At The Orner Law Firm, our divorce lawyers are trained in collaborative divorce. We believe collaborative divorce can be an effective tool for helping couples come to a workable divorce settlement outside court. We represent clients throughout Boca Raton and the surrounding areas in the Palm Beach and Broward Counties of Florida.  Call us today and schedule your initial consultation with a skilled collaborative divorce attorney.

The Collaborative Divorce Process

In a collaborative divorce in Florida, both parties to the divorce are represented by their own attorney. They sign a participation agreement that requires them to:

  • Reach agreement on all divorce issues outside of court
  • Exchange complete financial information
  • Maintain confidentiality

If one or both of the parties decides to pursue courtroom litigation of divorce issues, they must hire a new lawyer. The attorneys representing clients in a collaborative divorce cannot represent the same party in divorce litigation.

Appropriate for both contested and uncontested divorces, the collaborative law approach establishes a framework for couples to resolve differences with the help of others. Unlike mediation, each party is represented by an attorney throughout the process. Financial advisers and other experts can be retained, as needed, to counsel the parties and help move them toward settlement.
