Recently Kelly Clarkson announced that she would be seeking a divorce from her husband Brandon Blackstock. Regardless of your superstar status, divorcing with children is never easy. Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock have an opportunity to mitigate the negatives that inevitably are created for any divorcing couple.
These include how to raise and spend time with your children, divide up your assets and what type of spousal support should be paid. Traditionally, the only way to accomplish these difficult tasks was to litigate in an environment that did not encourage settlement. Rather, a courtroom is the place people go to when they cannot come to an agreement. There must be another way and there is. It is called “Collaborative Divorce.”
In Florida, the legislature has recognized the value of an alternative way for couples to divorce. Florida recognizes and judges like the Collaborative Divorce process.
Imagine sitting in a room with your lawyer, a financial professional, a mental health professional, your spouse and their lawyer and together coming up with options that you and your spouse can agree on to guide you through this emotionally difficult time in your family’s life.
This may sound expensive, but in reality it can often times be less costly than a traditional divorce both financially and emotionally.

Each professional has been trained in the collaborative process and is committed to helping both you and your spouse to successfully divorce while preserving the dignity and integrity of the process.

Often times, this results in savings in time and money for each client. You owe it to yourself to consult with a Collaborative Divorce trained attorney and see if you qualify for this type of a divorce.
