The trouble with the collaborative process is that nobody has heard of it. All through my divorce, my friends kept telling me I needed to hire a stronger attorney, one who would fight for me and win. Well… in the end, I do feel I won, big time. I not only got a great settlement in terms of the money, I’m also sure we got the best results possible for our kids. We’re never going to be that divorced couple who celebrate Christmas together. But the kids know that we can and will come to their weddings and be good with each other, which might not have happened if we’d stayed married, and certainly wouldn’t have happened if we’d made the divorce into a war. To me, that’s priceless.
