Does the Collaborative Divorce Process “Really” Work?

by | Aug 3, 2021

Yes, very well based on the statistics below found on the Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals (FACP) website.

U.S. Statistics on Collaborative Divorce

The International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) reports that 86% of Collaborative cases ended in a full resolution of all issues, while an additional 2% of clients decided to stay in their relationship. Even when a full agreement was not reached, substantial progress was often made on parenting issues and understanding finances.

Florida Collaborative Case Statistics

The Collaborative Divorce Process is being used in Florida for divorce, paternity, post-judgment, pre/postnuptial agreements, and LGBTQ community family divorces. Most Collaborative cases take less than a year to resolve and many take less than 6 months. The typical divorce court process can take years.
