The Florida Collaborative Law Process Act was adopted in 2016, making Florida the 14th state to pass a Collaborative Law Act. The Florida Supreme Court heard arguments on the proposed Collaborative Rules in February 2017. We expect that the Florida Collaborative Law Process Act will be fully implemented when we meet June 9 – 10, 2017 in Tampa at our 5th Annual Conference of the Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals. For the first time we will offer an optional day of intensive Pre-Conference training for financial and mental health neutrals on June 8th.

Whether you are a seasoned Collaborative Professional--lawyer, mental health or financial neutral--or new to the Collaborative Process, FACP’s annual conference should not be missed! Sharon Ellison will open the conference with the keynote address, Cutting Edge Skills for Defusing Defensiveness and Power Struggle. IACP President, Suzan Barrie Aiken, will present the Friday luncheon plenary.  Learn from the experts to enhance your collaborative skills or, if you are new to the Collaborative Process, learn basic process and theory.  Understand why a Collaborative divorce is not just settling a case. It’s a transformative process that models peaceful and productive dispute resolution methods for families in crisis. Transform your practice to positively shape the next generation of divorcing parents and their children. Become a Collaborative Process Star—a leader who introduces this peaceful conflict resolution process to your clients, colleagues and community.  Click here for the event speakers

Join us to network with colleagues who have shaped the future of Collaborative practice, which is poised to become the new normal for peaceful divorce resolution. 

Don’t wait to Get In On The Act.  Collaborative Process has grown rapidly in Florida. We have 13  collaborative communities around the state. Now is the time to develop and enhance your collaborative skills, your collaborative practice and your collaborative community.

The FACP 5th Annual Conference will be productive and enjoyable. Join us at the Renaissance International Plaza in Tampa on June 9-10, 2017!
