Tampa Bay Collaborative Divorce Group

Tampa Bay Collaborative Divorce Group

Collaborative Law is an excellent alternative to the traditional court-based, “fight at all costs” litigation system of divorce. It costs less, takes less time, causes less stress, opens up possibilities and should be considered by every divorcing couple. It is not for everyone.

The Tampa Bay Collaborative Divorce Group consists of three types of professionals:

Lawyers, Financial Professionals, and Facilitators

The Tampa Bay Collaborative Group is the most experienced collaborative divorce professional group in the Tampa Bay area. The lawyers in the Tampa Bay Collaborative Divorce Group are required to have a minimum of ten years of legal experience in the field of family law.

The financial professionals must have an aggregate of 20 hours of education in the financial fundamentals of divorce and at least one 30 hour training program in conflict resolution training or a minimum of 2 years hands on experience with divorces and no less than 50% of practice in family law.
