The Tampa Bay Academy of Collaborative Professionals is a highly selective group of independent attorneys, neutral financials and neutral facilitators who specialize in and commit to collaborative divorce.
All professionals accepted to TBACP are selected based on rigorous training and extensive experience beyond normal professional requirements. For instance, in order to be accepted as a member of TBACP, an attorney must have been practicing primarily in the area of marital and family law for a minimum of 10 years, and most of our attorneys far exceed the requirement.
All professionals, including legal, financial, and mental health experts, must be individually approved, first by the TBACP Board of Directors, and finally by a vote of the general membership. In addition to their individual profession’s requirements, all of our members must undergo specialized training in the collaborative process and the associated negotiation techniques. They must also be members in good standing of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
