Collaborative practice is interested based and works to resolve issues. As the Collaborative slogan goes, "Resolving Disputes Respectfully."
Having your own coach helps to keep the reactivity down and the dialogue moving forward which means things will happen in a more timely and efficient manner.
Collaborative Divorce Coaching helps you to have productive conversations toward reaching an agreement.
This means less time overall spent on legal fees, and, of course, no court costs!
While people worry about the financial costs of divorce they often overlook at the emotional cost of divorce. Depending on the degree of conflict you experience when divorcing it will have an emotional toll on you and your children that lasts years, even to the point of knocking a family off course for a generation.
If you're stressed and anxious, your children will undoubtedly absorb that stress whether you are aware of it or not.
A collaborative approach is built to reduce conflict and move both parties toward agreement.
You and your children will benefit from escaping unnecessary stress and tension through this more respectful process.
A word about the cost of the Collaborative Approach
- People are often heard to say, "with all those professionals involved it must be really expensive?"
- You will benefit emotionally and financially from having a divorce coach involved to help resolve issues more quickly rather than being in a process that contributes to your reactivity or that of your spouse...
- Also remember, you are making important decisions that will affect the next several years of your life and the life of your children; and, at a time when your stress and anxiety will probably never run higher in your life! Having a coach to keep you on track and making good decisions will benefit you.
