In my Florida divorce case, what are my alternatives to going to court?

In Florida, there are a couple of options you have instead of going to court to file a divorce. One option would be to go to mediation. It's an out of court process, it's a little bit more of a relaxed setting, and you're able to participate more. You do have the option to follow the case with the court through the filing of the petition. Then we also have collaborative law, which actually helps get all parties on equal footings to determine what assets and liabilities each has. These are good options to have instead of just going to the courthouse.
