Collaborative law can lead to amicable divorce

It is no secret divorces can be messy. Months and sometimes years of built up animosity can boil over, leading to explosive arguments over everything from property division to spousal support and child custody. While these ugly divorces may seem commonplace, not all divorces are combative, nor should they be. Instead, collaborative practice may be a more peaceful, fair option for couples deciding to divorce.

Divorce process does not have to be full of anger and fear

People are often surprised when they see a divorced couple who remain close friends. Instead, many expect the emotionally fraught divorce process to have brought about arguments, anger, and fear, forever ruining the splitting couples' relationship. While this is the case in many instances of divorce, it does not have to be. A couple that respects each other and truly wants the marriage to end amicably can seek out a collaborative practice to help reach a peaceful and fair resolution.

When people think of domestic violence they often think of a woman being abused by a man. While this is true in 96 percent of cases, the other four percent involve women committing domestic abuse against a man. It is a situation that is not often discussed, but is extremely important. As one man's story shows, domestic violence with a female aggressor can be just as dangerous as when a man is the aggressor.
