In a collaborative divorce in Florida, will I still go to court?

The only time you will go to court for a collaborative divorce in Florida is one, when the collaborative divorce is finalized, the marital settlement agreement has been signed, and then you go to court to have it entered into court order, but at that point in time, it has now become an uncontested divorce because you’ve already agreed on everything.

The only other time, and this is very rarely that you would go to court in a collaborative divorce, would be if the process fails, and remember if it fails, then everyone’s got to go, you lose your attorneys, you lose your experts, you start over, and you go back to court. Those are the only two times you would go to court. One if it’s successful, and it’s the end of the case, or two, it doesn’t succeed, and you have to use the litigative process.
