Does Collaborative Divorce Really Work? (Yes, 92% of the Time)
As many of you know, I focused my law practice in traditional divorce litigation in Palm Beach County for more than 13 years. Based upon my experience, a court battle is not your best option in divorce.
Instead, I recommend the Collaborative Divorce process. The benefits of the Collaborative Divorce process versus traditional litigation are many.
A few of the highlights of the Collaborative Divorce process are:
- You don’t fight in Court.
- You don’t pay unknown hourly attorney fees.
- You don’t wait a year or more to get divorced.
Many times, during an initial consultation, the husband or wife that I am meeting with will ask me:
“OK, Collaborative Divorce sounds like the best option for me and for my family, but what’s the catch?”
“Does this process really work or will I just be spinning my wheels to get nowhere?”
The answer is, “Yes, it really works.”
In fact, 92% of the time, the collaborative divorce process works to resolve the entire divorce with a full settlement agreement reached.
The Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals Research Committee worked tirelessly to collect this data and to share it with the legal community.
I am a lawyer after all, and I like to see the numbers. I have learned that the people I help with their divorce like to see the numbers too. They have worked very hard to build a nice lifestyle.
They don’t want to waste time and money paying lawyers to fight. They want to know all of the information before they make a big decision.
Results matter. Time matters. Money matters.
In my opinion, 92% is an actionable success rate.
