  • 2. Why would anyone ever want to collaborate?
    “Couples who are facing a divorce are not likely to hire lawyers who are more akin to mental health therapists and advocate that everyone get naked, jump in a pile, eat potluck and sign agreements mutually beneficial to everyone”

  • 14. Final Thoughts
    Lawyers are trained to do battle for their clients.  http://ricefamilylaw.com/articles/collaborative-law-and-divorce.htm
    “My ex-husband and I divorced via collaborative law. I think that's a main contributor to the way we can still talk to each other. I so hope I will never ever go through divorce again because it's horrible - but at least this time I don't feel damaged by the process itself.” User on Wikivorce
