Orlando Collaborative Law Attorneys
A Simpler Way to Resolve Family Law Disputes
Are you facing a divorce or other family law dispute? Are you worried about how you can resolve it without a long, expensive, and contentious court battle? Are you afraid that your negative feelings about your soon-to-be ex-spouse will cloud your judgment or prevent you from finding an effective resolution?
All of these are legitimate concerns when it comes to divorce and family law. Divorce brings with it a host of emotions, from anger, loss, and resentment to animosity and revenge. None of these are helpful if you want to preserve your sanity and the emotional well-being of your children.
Collaborative law is a more amicable way to handle the disagreements and adversity that can otherwise take a toll on your mental health, your finances, and your time. Collaborative law is an alternative dispute resolution method used in family law that will help you and your spouse come to terms using cooperative methods rather than contentious litigation. The Law Office of Paulette Hamilton, P.A. offers representation using collaborative law as a better way to reach a favorable settlement.
How Does Collaborative Divorce Work?
The collaborative law process begins with you and your spouse committing to resolving your divorce issues without the intervention of the courts. The process consists of you, your spouse, and your respective attorneys sitting down separately and together so as to resolve differences concerning divorce issues through constructive communication, problem-solving, and mutual respect. Attorneys trained in collaborative law use creative strategies to keep the communication flowing while also providing legal counsel to their respective clients.
The collaborative divorce process may also involve other professionals to help you solve your issues. These professionals are neutral parties who can provide much-needed information. They may be accountants or other financial experts, child counselors, or mental health experts. During the process, each party’s goals and interests are discussed and resolved together.
The benefits of this method include:
- Putting you in control of decisions as opposed to a judge
- Working on your own schedule rather than penciling in court schedules and proceedings
- Saving money and time
- Resolving disputes more amicably
Once you and your spouse have reached an agreement on all of the issues related to your divorce with the help of your team, the agreement can be drafted as a marital settlement for approval from the court.
