On March 25, 2021, Virginia became the 20th state (plus the District of Columbia) to adopt by statute or rule the Uniform Collaborative Law Act. Florida adopted the Uniform Collaborative Law Process Act in 2016. The Florida Legislature codified a way to resolve divorces that family law professionals conceived in 1990. Florida’s Act works in harmony with Florida’s Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.745, Florida’s Rule 4-1.19, Rules Regulating the Florida Bar, and the Florida Supreme Court’s collaborative divorce forms.
