Marriage can be challenging. For some, this is just part of being committed to one’s partner. But for others, the bad aspects of their relationships outweigh the good. If you find yourself in this position, then you might be considering divorce, which in itself can be a daunting thought. After all, divorce often involves heated arguments, litigation, and fighting for what you think you deserve.
But this doesn’t have to be the case. If you and your spouse are able to communicate in a calm manner, then a collaborative divorce might be right for you. In contrast to a contested, litigated divorce, a collaborative divorce allows you and your spouse to gather a team of professionals to help you work out a divorce agreement that is fair under the circumstances. As we discussed last week, a divorce coach is often an important member of this team.
But a divorce coach is not, by any means, the only professional who can help you if you choose collaborative divorce. Financial advisors and child specialists can also help ensure that parties to the divorce are seeing the situation from the other side. With that being said, you still need someone on your side to let you know what is fair and what isn’t. This is where a skilled family law attorney can help.
