Collaborative Law (Family Law)

Jeffrey P. Wasserman has now expanded his practice to offer Collaborative Law as an alternative process to litigation in helping clients resolve their differences with their spouse in a divorce setting through a joint effort of both parties. He has been through several training sessions and is poised to become certified, once the Rules are adopted by the Supreme Court of Florida. He is a member of the Florida Association of Collaborative Professionals (FACP) and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP).

Jeff has come to recognize the benefits and need for resolving divorces through this process. The Collaborative Process allows divorcing parties to jointly come together to resolve their differences in a non-confrontational fashion, thus helping to preserve the integrity of the family unit, while permitting them to obtain a divorce. Children are the ultimate beneficiaries of the process as it keeps the parents from fighting in a litigious mode. Neither party gives up their rights in this process. It simply allows them to reach a conclusion by working together to achieve what is best for them and their children.

Collaborative Law is not for everyone. There must be a commitment by both parties to be able to work together with their respective attorneys and the Collaborative team composed of the mental health facilitator and the forensic accountant and other joint experts, in achieving a successful conclusion to their divorce settlement. For those who wish to enter the process, it is believed they will find that it works to their satisfaction, so long as they maintain an open mind and a desire not to fight with their spouse. If both parties cannot adopt this position, then it is not likely the Collaborative Process will work for them.

Jeff believes this is the way to go for the future of divorce and he will be pleased to discuss the process with you, if you have an interest in proceeding in this fashion. Remember, however, that both you and your spouse must sign onto the Participation Agreement to begin the process in order for it to work. If your spouse is not interested, then perhaps you can suggest that your spouse consult another Collaborative professional to get an explanation of the process.

Please contact Jeff for more information on Collaborative Law if you are interested in this process for resolving the issues of your divorce.
