Is The Collaborative Divorce Process Right For You?

There are a number of factors to review to determine if a Collaborative divorce is a good strategy for you. If the points below apply to you, there is a good chance a Collaborative divorce is a strategy you can use.

  1. I know that I will be better served in the long run if my spouse and children are also well served.
  2. I want to speak and act as my best self, even though sometimes my words and actions seem to come from my worst self.
  3. I want my lawyer to be a wise counselor and an engaged moral agent rather than a hired gun and an alter ego.
  4. I am willing to be in the same room with my spouse and to speak for myself and my own legitimate self-interest with the assistance of one or more Collaborative professionals.
  5. I am open to solutions that will respect both my and my spouse’s needs and interests.
  6. I want to make decisions affecting the future of myself and my family from a place of calm, considered wisdom, rather than from a place of anger, humiliation and fear – even though I may be experiencing those hard feelings, now, and during the process of the divorce.
  7. If it were possible, I would prefer deeper resolution rather than a shallow space.
  8. I know that at times things may feel hard and uncomfortable, but I am willing to be with that discomfort and to preserve through the process.
  9. I want to act ethically for myself, for my spouse and for the sake of my children.
  10. After the divorce is completed, I want to be able to look back and feel good about the outcome and how I handled myself during the process.
