Divorce should be managed through the collaborative process. Divorce is simply an issue that is too large to trust to only one professional discipline. The issues are far too complex to expect one set of experts to have sufficient knowledge, experience, and background to reach the best possible result for all concerned. The client is always in the position of providing the best answer to the complex needs of families in crisis. The number one job of the divorce professional is education, information, and instruction. The number two job is modeling behaviors for the parties for operating an estate of diminished capacity. The third job is conflict management and dispute resolution. The fourth job is to provide a safe, protected environment for the raising of healthy, whole, and complete children.

Wow look at this!
