Julie N. Client.
Divorce is going to be a stressful process anyway. The adversarial nature of the litigation process really only enhances that stress and creates pretty significant emotional responses to the divorce process. It’s very unlikely that anyone who goes through a litigated process is going to be happy with their divorce process, because it is such an adversarial process focusing on really a I win, you lose scenario.
Some clients for their needs may find that sitting at a kitchen table and working out the issues, works just fine for them. Some clients feel that they may need the litigated process. I focus on collaborative divorce and mediation because I find that the out of court process is a significant benefit to the clients in working towards a resolution that is acceptable to both parties. The clients are empowered both in mediation and in the collaborative divorce process to focus on a resolution that meets their needs.
