Research has shown that half of all people who marry will end up divorced. It’s sad and difficult, but it’s often the only way out when marital counseling doesn’t work. The collaborative divorce process consists of a team that includes the spouses, two lawyers, a neutral mental health professional and a financial expert, all trained in the collaborative mind frame. Feelings of anger, betrayal and resentment are voiced out by the spouses during this difficult process, yet having a neutral mental health professional as part of the team helps deal with emotions, as well as the present and future concerns of children. If the couples get stuck on a particular issue, which happens all the time, the team makes sure that they move forward smoothly, taking into consideration that the spouses may not be emotionally ready at the same time nor are they able to make decisions in the same manner. This approach empowers you, not lawyers or judges, to make decisions on how to shape the outcome of your divorce. Couples that have chosen this process say it is advantageous in many ways:
• Saves time and money in the legal process
• Reduces conflict
• Minimizes the destruction of divorce
• Helps protect the children from emotional damage
• Aids families in dividing wealth/business
Though divorce will always be painful, a collaborative divorce process is an effective alternative that will address legal, financial and emotional needs and achieve the best family arrangement possible.
