Florida Family Law Mediator

Collaborative Law Training in Punta Gorda

A big thank you to the Charlotte County Collaborative Professionals for hosting the Collaborative Law Training seminar April 27 and 28 in Punta Gorda, Florida at The Farr Law Firm. The two day event featured the Florida Collaborative Law Trainers presenting an introductory course. The seminar was well attended by attorneys, mental health professionals and financial advisors.

The Collaborative Law Process is a team approach used to resolve family law disputes. In this process the parties pledge to settle their dispute in a civil manner without litigation. The parties work with their specially trained lawyers, a neutral facilitator and other experts, if needed, to resolve conflict and develop a workable settlement. The Collaborative law Process has advantages over “going to Court”.

  • PRIVATE-The collaborative law process takes place in a private, confidential setting. Courtrooms are open forums full with people who listen to your personal details as the case is litigated.
  • LESS EXPENSIVE-The collaborative law process is usually less expensive than fighting it out in Court.
  • QUICKER-Resolving a case collaboratively is faster than having a trial and waiting for a Judge to rule.
  • CONVENIENT-The parties decide when and where to meet to work on resolving their case. Going to Court means the Judge sets the schedule of the case at the convenience of the Court without much regard for the parties’ schedules.

There are numerous other reasons to use the Collaborative Law Process. For more information regarding this process and the Charlotte County Collaborative Professionals
