Ending a marriage is one of the most difficult things someone can face. It can throw a couple into turmoil, often bringing the whole family into chaos—at least for a time. Divorcing couples can be defensive, protective, and feel pressure to “best” the other spouse in negotiations, especially if entering into our adversarial court system, and can lose the ability to think about the well-being of their family in the heat of battle. The way a couple chooses to make decisions when divorcing has a big impact on how well and how soon each of them, and their children, can move forward. The Collaborative Process provides an opportunity to make decisions differently and respectfully. Decisions do not have to be characterized as a win for the individual and a couple can focus on doing good for the family, which doesn’t end even if the marriage does.
