If you searched for a Divorce Attorney in the Tampa Bay area, you have undoubtedly come across websites advertising a fairly recent concept known as “Collaborative Divorce.” This Firm does not practice Collaborative Divorce, but is often referred cases from Collaborative Divorce lawyers once the collaborative process breaks down because of our litigation and trial experience.
This firm recognizes that no matter how you look at it, divorce and family law matters are difficult to go through. Theoretically, Collaborative Divorce offers an alternative divorce process.
However, the Collaborative Divorce process is not exact, perfect, or by any means a guarantee. Often times, the process breaks down because, among other reasons, husbands and wives very rarely agree on everything once they have decided to go through a complex divorce. As is the case with traditional litigation cases, parties agree on some things, but not on everything, and thus, the Collaborative Divorce process may not suit your case.
If you have tried the Collaborative Divorce, and the process did not work for you, then under the retainer agreement, your attorney cannot represent you in the subsequent litigation. This Firm wants your case and is prepared to meet with you and your former Collaborative Divorce lawyer to read the case for the inevitable next step: Trial.
As a trial firm, the lawyers at In Law We Trust, P.A. – The Law Offices of John DeGirolamo, Esq. are ready to accept your Post-Collaborative Divorce case. If the Collaborative Divorce process has failed, then contact us today.
