Final Thoughts<br />Lawyers are trained to do battle for their clients.  http://ricefamilylaw.com/articles/collaborative-law-and-divorce.htm<br />“My ex-husband and I divorced via collaborative law. I think that&apos;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&apos;s horrible - but at least this time I don&apos;t feel damaged by the process itself.” User on Wikivorce<br />
