Stop, Collaborate and…Divorce!

The Collaborative Divorce generally describes a holistic approach to a marital break-up that attempts to avoid excessive litigation and trial.  It often is criticized for being too expensive, as being “holistic” may also mean paying an attorney, a child therapist, a CPA and others to contribute to the process.  Often, these same people get paid even bigger bucks to participate in a divorce trial, but more people do not have those kinds of assets that would warrant such an army of experts.

The popularity of collaborative law, however, has grown exponentially.  Perhaps, the growth is due in part to attorneys’ conversion to the process.  Of recent note is the story below – a classic tale where the legal counselor changes her tune after having to walk a mile in her client’s.
