Collaborative practice, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic through use of video technology, provides a terrific opportunity to help my clients to identify and pursue a process of divorcing that is more client-controlled and safer than traditional, litigation-based divorce. I enjoy this practice area especially because I see that it probably is the best feasible way to achieve a respectful, less painful divorce. It can be the optimal approach for divorcing couples and their children, and for aging couples too. If both spouses agree to work within the collaborative divorce process, it can allow them to take the lead to identify and implement cooperatively a resolution of their marital issues, without fighting through the courts. The environment is client controlled, while being supported by legal and other professional support and guidance. It also tends to facilitate divorcing families identifying and establishing an amicable working relationship for future co-parenting.
