When you are facing the possibility of divorce, it is important for you to see that you are not a powerless victim. You don’t need to worry about your future. You can simply create your future by choosing the collaborative divorce process where you put together a powerful team of experts to put you in control of the outcome.
Collaborative Divorce is similar to mediation but generally more effective in that both parties have their own attorney to advise them and there is a team environment where additional professionals are added as needed. The result is that you end up getting “the best bang for your buck” because you are paying for only those professionals that can help you the most. For example, you don’t want to pay your lawyer to put together a parenting plan for you and your spouse. You’d be far better off paying for a co-parenting coach as part of your collaborative divorce team who would likely take less time while being far more effective. Believe it or not, the collaborative divorce process will very likely cost less money than hiring a litigation happy lawyer with his or her own agenda (for instance, winning and making lots of money).
